When: 2011-10-23

Notes: Almost exclusively growing from the pine cones of Pinus taeda. I found only one growing from a stick which appeared to be pine as well.

Spore print is a “rusty yellow”.

Spores are thick walled and appear to be slightly roughened.

that it is the common Gymnopilus penetrans (often misinterpreted as sapineus..). interesting to see what spore measures you come up with.

That is what I was thinking

I’m going to spend more time with the specimen under the scope soon. I measured fifteen spores from the gill but I’d rather measure the spores from the spore print.
I didn’t see any cool looking cystidia or anything but I’m going to check it out again when I’m not pushed for time.

Some kind of Gymnopilus maybe
