Observation 62962: Polyporales sensu lato

When: 2011-01-31

Collection location: Providence Block Tree Plantation, Lebanon, Linn Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Britney Ramsey (Riverdweller)

No specimen available

Growing on the outskirts of a pile of pine debris and dirt. Pines and hawthorn.

Large cap surface, dinner plate sized. Velvet texture. Changing from dark brown at margin to a lighter brown towards disc. Margin slightly ruffled.
Context creamy, firm, rubbery. Not changing when injured.

Pore surface creamy buff, showing spots of bright yellow and orange. Pores wide and not uniform, running down the stem.

Stem off-center. Colored slightly darker than the pore surface. Solid, firm, difficult to cut. No color change. Stems joining towards the base.

It smelled like rotting mushroom, slightly fishy.

The only thing that came to mind was Jahnoporus, but I know that can’t be right.
