Observation 161588: Pyrofomes demidoffii (Lév.) Kotl. & Pouzar
When: 2014-03-17
No herbarium specimen

Notes: On living Utah juniper (Juniperus osteosperma) at about 5000’ elevation. No rain since 3/2/14. Pyropolyporus earlei is a deprecated synonym.

Went back to my notes of 3/17/14: tubes and pores were yellow.
