No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

This young specimen had vividly yellow pores. All features agree with B/R/B description except the thin band of reticulation on the upper stipe… first time I noticed this… and the stipe completely flushed in red. Pores bruised rather quickly, context slowly and incompletely. Found in a mixed hardwood + White Pine forest… Oak, Tulip Poplar… a one acre area where I have observed or collected this type for the past 5 years.

I think what looks like reticulation is where the pores tore away from the stipe apex when the cap became fully expanded. Let’s invent a new term: These are pore prints {;>]. oops, can you make smiley faces here?
