Observation 204159: Polyporales sensu lato

When: 2015-05-10

Collection location: Georgia State Botanical Garden, Athens, Georgia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Bill Sheehan (B_Sheehan)

No specimen available

Old specimens at the base of Quercus rubra. Large clusters attached to a short, thick common stalk.

OK, between Meripilus sumstinei and Grifola frondosa: It’s like Meripilus (large caps, whitish pore surface with fairly small pores) except that it does not stain black. Either because it is old or it is Grifola…
