Observation 191303: Polyporales sensu lato

Possibly a Tyromyces, though conspicuously non-staining and rather non-squishy. Growing on the cut face of a downed conifer. Someone else has better, in situ photos.

Coastal redwood forest mixed with Douglas fir, grand fir, hemlock, bishop pine, tanoak, alder, madrone and bay myrtle.

Collected for the 2014 MSSF Mendocino Woodlands Camp.

L. mollis (I’m not super familiar with that species), but Danny’s notes regarding lack of staining and firmer texture make me think it’s not.

Every time I have seen L. mollis it was really rather squishy and watery.
