Observation 52020: Phanerochaete viticola (Schwein.) Parmasto
When: 2010-09-04
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

This looked like a particularly striking crust that i would be able to identify with some rooting around. I was thinking a peniophora species… But i couldnt find anything. Could it be an old merulius dried up?…
It was found on a conifer branch.

I am working on a specimen sent to me by NYMS member Sarah-David Rosenbaum. Like yours it is grey, corticoid with an orange margin.

Microscopy shows a monomitic hyphal structurem branching at right angles, no clamps, hyaline allentoid spores.

I would not go with Phlebia at all

there were a couple of scrub oaks around, may have fallen near. But if you are going to go with phlebia… then i would be more apt to say P. radiata
