Observation 55403: Polyporales sensu lato
When: 2010-10-12
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Medium size shelves found on a dead tree. The upper side was brown and there were brown pores below. In the specimen pictured there were a few whitish areas on the underside, and on one specimen most of the underside was covered with a white layer. I think this is likely hypomyces. In the magnified photo there are tiny greenish “bushes” on the underside. Is this another fungus? A mold?
