Observation 194045: Polyporus squamosus (Huds.) Fr.
When: 2014-09-26
No herbarium specimen

Notes: It was growing in a cluster of three on the bark of a tree; when it was collected, there was white rot found on the side of the stem. The fruiting body was broad and dirty white and yellowish with brown and white scales along the surface of the “cap”. It was measured to be around 6.5cm wide. The surface was smooth, moist, slippery/lubricous. The stem was very tough (it was hard to remove this from its substrate) and had a lateral shape, measured about 1.5cm wide. A brown-colored liquid oozed from the specimen when it was cut open. There are also white pores under the pileus.
