Observation 209048: Trichaptum Murrill
When: 2015-07-03
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Very interesting, small, densely hairy gray caps with concentric zones of texture on small fallen tree branch. Largest cap = 2.5 cm. X 2 cm. Fertile surface has reddish-brown pores that are toothy, soft and pliable when fresh but hard and stiff when dry. When view straight on (as in the 3rd picture) they appear mazelike. All caps have a pinkish-violet pore surface that grows from the non-fertile cap face. Portions of the branch have just the pink- pored “whatever it is” (as in last photo), not yet attached to a cap. It may be that these are 2 separate, symbiotic fungi; but that’s just a guess on my part.

Thanks, Danny. I don’t know why I didn’t think of that.

It makes good sense: hairy cap, violet color, and toothy pores. I’ve just never seen it looking exactly like this specimen.
