Observation 2681: Steccherinum ochraceum (Pers.) Gray
When: 2007-02-25
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Adding an unknown here, I’m not that good at polypores, and esp. resupinate forms. But there were a lot of small polypore like wood rotting action this past weekend, with all the rain. And most were just Sterium, but I came across this one. Not Sterium, the end of the log had all these layers of shell like fungus, but along the log was the sheet of resupinate fungus. The edges of the sheet that are pulling back from the log look just like the shelf fungus on the end, so it is all the same stuff here.

The closest is Datrona (Or something like that maybe?) in Arora, but I don’t really see the same features in the pores for that. Otherwise I’m just not sure here, kinda funny stuff.

Recognized by sight: the toothed hymenophore and color makes me think this is this species, but I don’t know whether this occurs in CA. It’s hard to wait 14 months for an answer! Update: It looks like Darvin has another picture of this species from California, so it does occur there. We can learn so much on mushroom observer!
