Observation 64501: Trametes hirsuta (Wulfen) Lloyd

When: 2011-03-19

Collection location: Woodburn, Marion Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Sava Krstic (sava)

No specimen available

Growing on a walnut tree. I suppose the tree was not dead because the whole orchard has been recently pruned.

Matches most macro characteristics of T. hirsuta, including mild anise odor. However, I’m not seeing the duplex structure in the flesh, with the “two layers seprated by a thin black line”. [Trudell & Amirati, Mushrooms of the PNW]

Two layers

Thanks, Darvin. Only now I see what is meant by the two layers. The hairy stuff on the surface is the layer by itself.

Look at the base.

There is a thin, wrinkled black line near the upper surface at the base (the thick end). The line is always near the hairy top surface.
