Observation 193077: Polyporales sensu lato
When: 2014-12-09
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Shelf fungus growing on burned logs. The area is filled with downed burned wood. The location is mixed hardwood and pine. I couldn’t be sure if the wood was hardwood or pine.

The shelf bodies were 3-4 inches long and 1/2 inch thick.

It was tough but I was able to tear off a piece. The texture was velvety. The pore surface was dark brown. The interior is layered as in wood rings.
