and so true, so true …
once you learn how to see it!
not just winter! Corticiologists are hunting the whole year after crusts :)
a great time to hunt crusts! ;)
Could you or the renown polyporist take a stab at an ID for the
I am loving this thing, and I would like to slap a name on it.
I don’t think I have seen anything like your A. albida over here.
are from both Americas and I am not sure if that species even does grow there. My funde are the ones that is commonly understood as A. albida in Europe; sloping vertical pores and pseudocaps are characteristic for A. xantha. I will post another albida from France where a renown polyporist has assured the determination. There are a lot of other Antrodia species that look like sloping pores. The only very similar in Europe is of Mediterranean origin.
neither do observation 18902 or observation 85713. I don’t know the species well enough to make any conclusive claims, but compared to every other ob called A. albida on the site, your three are distinctly different, specifically in lacking the protruding “hooves” of vertically elongated pores against a resupinate background. Then again, your three could simply be a less commonly seen variant.
You say on 18902 — indeed lots of these latest crust obs — that it was recognized by microscopic features. What microscopic features? Grateful as I am to see crusts getting some long-awaited spotlight on the site, the level of documentation on some of these is pretty low. I’m getting close to shipping you my POS point and shoot so we can at least see what you’re seeing under the scope.
