Thanks for sending the link. I found it very interesting and have filed it away (along with the embedded link to Tom Volk’s Polypore Primer) for future reference.

this looks like a hardwood tree—maybe oak? If so L. sulphureus makes sense as a proposal given the yellow pores. But found a reference you might be interested in, maybe you’ve seen it, that there is a yellow pored one on conifers east of the Great Plains: L. huroniensis.

was made last October, a great month for a large variety of edible mushrooms in the St. Louis area; however, I don’t eat wild mushrooms … just hunt them for the joy of identifying them and learning more about the science of mycology. This particular specimen was a tad on the old side, as I recall, and very “buggy.” I just realized last night that I had inadvertently IDed it as L. cincinnatus, which has a white pore surface. I know better and am surprised that no one caught this error earlier. The weather here is always very changeable. We are mostly in the 50-70 degree range for early Spring. It is Morel season here now, if you are one who enjoys choice edibles!

How are the temps where you’re at?

Also, did you collect any of these for the table?
