if scandinavian and californian Trichaptum species aren’t exactly the same..
A scandinavian abietinum grows mainly on Picea (abies).

the spores for this species should be 4-8 X 2-4 microns. I measured these to be approx. 5.5-6.1 X 3.3-3.9 microns. I can’t say for sure what old log they were growing on, but the area is heavy in Douglas fir, tanoak as well as redwood. Also according to Arora, in our area it favors Douglas fir and pine.
How strange

The spores are clearly broader than they are described by Ryvarden & Gilbertson – and the specimen don’t look like the Trichaptum abietinum I know from Scandinavia either. What tree does it grow on?
