No specimen available

Almost too sturdily constructed to be a Pleurotus, assuming that Pleurotus is not allowed to house any dimitic or trimitic species. If not Pleurotus, then Panus. The purple seems diagnostic. Similar or same collected at the Centro de Investigacion Antonia Ramos as well (Observation 231289).

Substrate: on downed, corticate, ~20cm diam. log.

Habitat: public park trail

Ecoregion: Alta Paraná Atlantic Forests (NT0150)

Collectors: E. Grassi, D. Newman, V. Silva & V. Vignale
