Observation 93852: Polyporus radicatus Schwein.
When: 2012-05-04
(35.0° 84.0° )
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Habitat: On soil at the edge of the trail in mixed hardwood forest (oaks, poplar, hickory)
Spore Print: WHITE
Texture: It crumbled like soft cornbread when I picked it up, it was very light weight and airy feeling given its large size (14-15 cm).
Notes: Very well decayed specimen, full of holes and bugs and tunnels and smelled like a wet dog. The cap surface had an odd texture as well, sort of soft like felt, but I didnt see any hairs. Very large spores and large 2-sterigmate basidia.

Are those soft and super spongey and crumbly? I did not think Polyporus only because texture didn’t seam right, but I will look and see if the spores match?
