Observation 18782: Polyporus tuberaster (Jacq.) Fr.
When: 2007-01-10
No herbarium specimen

Notes: this was a very tough mushroom, both cap and sclerotium; hard to see the pores in this shot, but it dosn’t seem to be a very good macro or tactile match for my recent “tuberaster” posting. spore confirmation would convince me, tho.

exact date of Fair estimated.
