Notes: Grown on aspen. Faint but pleasant sweetish smell.

it has really prominent beautiful lamprocystidia, very long, thick-walled, heavily encrusted. I would love to provide scope pics but I have no tubus for that. Maybe in the future I can if I have enough money to buy some and a better camera. Moreover, the species’ consistency is also a good feature, look at it magnified and you know what I mean. Furthermore this faint but distinctive smell sometimes like in this find stronger sometimes weaker. There are some other features as well but to be firm in Corticiaceae you need a lot of work to do first and years of consistent training. I am doing them for about ten years now and they are my faves besides the boletes. But very often you do not come to a final conclusion for there are for sure many undescribed species here. Or species complexes which are in desperate need of being detected and described as new.
Include more of the details in the obs. please. And what featured pushed you to what part of the Corticeacea (how do I spell that?) book. And any photos from the scope that you might have, that would help. And for each of these crust obs. you just posted.
I’ve just collect a few crusts here in California, and I need to start looking at them in more detail, and go through that crust book too. At some point…
