Observation 207727: Polyporales sensu lato
When: 2015-05-23

Notes: In wet conditions on a soggy downed and decayed deciduous tree, these little polypores wore quite pretty colors … concentric shades of pinks and grays. However, just as soon as they began to dry, the colors faded dramatically leaving only larger bands of gray and white (see dry coloration in 4th photo). The specimens are very light weight. They sound “corky” when tapped on an object; and when cutting into them it feels just like cutting though cork. The context and tubes are pristine white.
