This “lumpy bracket” with the slot like pores (that’s how I remember it) is EVERYWHERE in my area of the Midwest. I can’t walk 10 feet in any of the forests or woodsy areas around here without finding it. So common I have stopped noting observations. It must be increasing its distribution area at a rapid rate.

Thanks for your comments. Thay should help clear the confusion between these two species. Phil

T. gibbosa is a common European species which is a twin of Lenzites elegans. I think both will end up in Trametes. There are theories on separating these two macroscopically but none are very convincing. It is interesting that Trametes elegans was considered a subtropical species. It was never found at the NEMF foray until recent years. Now it is common in New England.

macro characteristics separate L. elegans from T. gibbosa? Is it simply that T. gibbosa has “bumps” on it? Am I correct in assuming that some experts believe that they are synonymous , and that T. gibbosa may take precedence over the former.
