Observation 19114: Oligoporus subcaesius (A. David) Ryvarden & Gilb.,
When: 2009-03-03
No herbarium specimen

Notes: No specimen — no way to dry a thick shelf mushroom in just one day.

Shelf on big Nothofagus pumilio log, somewhat spongy-soft (but still tough enough to be difficult to cut into); CAP all white except for long curved dark bristles all over top (remniscent of Hexagonia hydnoides in texture); FLESH solid white, about 1 cm thick; TUBES white, about 1 cm thick, tiny (about 4 per mm), ends eroded making it quite tooth-like, exudes clear colorless liquid when squeezed.

(First photo wasn’t color-balanced correctly: it is not as yellowish as it appears there.)

Recognized by sight: the bluing hints to this species or to Oligoporus caesius; I found this circumpolar species myself in Australia.
