I look into Lentinus, the more I get the feeling Dennis’ notions of the genus and its members are far, far outdated. Pegler’s monograph isn’t bulletproof either, according to Hibbett and Vilgalys (Systematic Botany, Vol. 18, No. 3 (Jul. – Sep., 1993), pp. 409-433). The 1985 Redhead and Ginns paper is in ILL processing as we speak.

Lentinus make my head hurt.

Thanks Darv and Myxomop for the Trinidad link…

It looks like L. nicotianus/swartzii is not a candidate….described as having brown cap/hairs.

Ron – according to Pegler, L. nicotianus is now known as L. swartzii.

a typical Lentinus crinitus. In Dennis’s “Lentinus in Trinidad..”, he notes a Lentinus nicotianus that has dense erect hairs on both cap and stipe. Unfornunately I can’t (freely) get into the rest of the article, nor can I find any more details on the web.

Wow Wow and Wow!

If it wasn’t for the long stipe, I would suggest Lentinus strigosus.
