Observation 217027: Gymnopilus luteofolius (Peck) Singer
When: 2015-09-19
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Fruiting on a very pithy hardwood stump. My friend said it used to be a large standing maple that was cut down years ago. We found Trametes hirsutum on the other side of the log last season.

Very yellow, vibrant gills.

Purple hued cap, textured flocculose apex(similar to young honey mushrooms). Cortina esque webbing leaves a universal veil.

Cap margin has light white flocking prior to expansion. most specimens have a deeply incurved margin.

Stem is striated and somewhat fibrillose when dried.

Dried specimens available in situ(we took the whole piece of bark to dry). Young specimens were still evident on the log- we will go back no doubt for more later this season once the rains come.

Found at sea level.

Temp: upper 60’s.
