Observation 214173: Polyporales sensu lato

When: 2015-08-23

Collection location: Tioga Pass Rd., Yosemite National Park, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Sava Krstic (sava)

No specimen available

Growing on bark on dead standing spruces. Found at a young stage, rather large (up to 12 cm) and still soft throughout.

It was easy to see scars on the bark where last year’s generation of this fungus was growing, but only the remains of one were left, shown in the third photo here. It’s solid but very light and breaks easily. The top of this old one looks dark green-grey.

There are ~3 pores per 1mm (in the young ones). No spores yet.
