Perhaps the name bridgeoporus grandisimus
Can be applied? Since the bridgeoporus that is currently known only grows on noble fir, that could have been a reason why it wasnt spotted outside of oregon and a sliver of washington, since noble fir is restricted naturally to those areas. It make sense to me.

Study or request data

Wow is there anywhere to request data and or
Hi rez photos and magnified pore surface shots or a tiny slice of the specimin to examine myself? This is interesting news and is about as far south as ive heard of one being found. Bridgeporous is found on noble fir abies Procera. Would love to document this since its been collected. On a part of my page i post my work@ chael thomas on facebook. Im working on amassing info of all the species of the world. Ive honed my search on polyporles first since this is such an arduous task, thanks to the help of mycophiles around the world, i have been able to study region exclusive mushrooms. After reading your bio Darv im fully impressed and would love to get in touch.

is that info somewhere?

this obsie and the other one that I looked at on MO say “no specimen,” let alone that it was DNA confirmed as a new Bridgeoporus sp.

It takes a polypore person, I guess, to recognize the oddballs!

seems like a good idea, to really know what you found.
