Observation 87950: Schizophyllum commune Fr.

Growing on bamboo harvested about 6 months ago on the Hamakua Coast. Brought to Orchidland after harvest while green. Now dried and being used for sheltered work area at our neighbors place. Out of hundreds of pieces of bamboo, only one appears to be colonized.

The hairiest mushroom I have ever seen:)

Just figured out what I thought it was, but the name had already been proposed.
Mushrooms of Hawaii – Hemmes & Desjardin, only show the underside, but describe as densely hairy.
