Observation 171595: Phylloporus Quél.
When: 2014-07-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Habitat: Found In the solitary growing near a dead log.

Notes: Diameter of pileus measured to be 6.5 cm. Measurement of stalk and pileus was near 8 cm. Pileus surface was smooth and brown colored. The stipe was present and attached eccentric. The stipe was darker color than the pileus and was thick. Underside of the pileus had gills present that were white colored.

Rationale for ID: This specimen was determined to be Phyllporus because of its chemical and some morphological attributes. Though gills were present, the body bruised blue when the fruiting body was cut into. Gills were also decurrent with the stipe. The spore print is brown and the spores are smooth and elliptical shaped. This specimen also reacted with KOH, turning blue. All of these attributes indicated that this specimen was in Boletales and the gilled under surface of the pileus points this to Phyllporus genus
