Observation 98010: Albatrellus confluens (Alb. & Schwein.) Kotl. & Pouzar
When: 2012-06-22
(35.6695° -84.2385° 259m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Another micro-pored pallid stipitate polypore, maybe the same as from this observation: http://mushroomobserver.org/97732 fruitbody was aged and dry and may be Loweomyces-like, however it was found in a conifer forest growing with needles, pine cones, and conifer twigs rather than on hardwood branches. Spore morphology similar with respect to size (4.5-6 × 4-5 µm), shape (smooth, subglobose), and amyloidicity (inamyloid).

are consistent. Its not unreasonable that these were appearing saprotrophic. Kuo describes A. confluens as developing reddish colors when dried, these were dry when I found them and have maintained their clean white color.

i stand behind my proposal.

Are mycorrhizal associates, these were not found in soil.
