Observation 8069: Polyporales sensu lato
When: 2008-05-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This tree fungi I do not have anything that comes close in my references. Fortunately I did get some undeside shots showing the honeycomb like gills.There also were some small orange-brown type growths above the gills in a couple of areas. There seems to be an underlying brown base beneath the white gills. The tops of the fungi were white.

Only Volume two at the moment. I think I would need to rob a bank to own the “Bundle” My next purchase will be Volume 1. Have emailed you. Chow, kk

The whole set of Fungi of Switzerland?

Didja find a deal somewhere? ;)

Looks like you have become yet another hopeless mushroom geek. Congrats, and welcome to our world!

Tom, Thanks for your comment. I always have great difficulty with these fungi? I have managed to purchase Fungi of Switzerland and waiting for it to arrive. I see this type of specimen regularly and will check it out. My notes did not reveal the texture. I will include texture in future. Again, really appreciate your support, Chow, kk


This fungi was slightly spongy to touch but because of its thickness I would lean towards hard.

hard or soft?

Was this hard or soft? If harder it could be a Fomitopsis. If soft, it’s likely an Oligoporus or Tyromyces.
