Notes: This white film was growing on the underside of the woody polypores in observation 88308.
Perenniporia fraxinophila, maybe. P.rimosus does not have large pores.
microscopy would be interesting to see.
a shame it’s not a partial veil, as I’ve been eager to read or hear something of substance on the subject of hemiangiocarpy in polypores for a long time now. no leads yet :/
Partial veil was my first thought as well, except Phellinus rimosus does not have a partial veil, and the white film covers only parts of the pore surface, rather than the whole thing as would be expected from a partial veil. Webbing from worms or tiny spiders was another thought, but this film looks a bit too substantial to chalk up to insect or spider webs.
My best guess is a secondary parasitic fungus.
I found what seemed, by all outward appearances, to be a partial veil covering part of the hymenophore of a resupinate polypore:
could that be a possibility here? or did this film have a truly secondary fungus feel to it?
