Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

Sanctioning name :
Daedalea pini (Brot.) Fr., Systema Mycologicum 1: 336 (1821) [MB#444128]

Basionym :
Boletus pini Brot., Flora Lusitanica 2: 468 (1804) [MB#233528]

Pileus hard, typically ungulate, conchate or effused-reflexed in varieties, often imbricate, 5-8 X 7-12 X 5-8 em., smaller in varieties; surface very rough, deeply sulcate, tomentose, tawny- brown, becoming rimose and almost black with age; margin rounded or acute, tomentose, ferruginous to tawny-cinnamon, entire, sterile in large specimens; context soft-corky to indurate, ferruginous, 5-10 mm. thick, thinner in small specimens; tubes stratified, white to avellaneous within, becoming ferruginous at maturity and in the older layers, 5 mm. long each season, much shorter in thin specimens, mouths irregular, circular or daedale- oid, often radially elongate, averaging I to a mm., edges fer- ruginous to grayish-umbrinous, glistening when young, rather thin, entire; spores subglobose, smooth, hyaline at maturity, becoming brownish with age, 5-Q X 3-4 J.t; cystidia abundant, short, 25-35 X 4-Q J.t.
Very common throughout on living trunks of conifers, causing a serious heart-rot. The variation in the shape of the hymeno- phores is exceedingly confusing. Miiller recently confirms Hartig’s statement that this species also causes a dry rot in pine and fir.

“This study provides evidence for the taxonomy of some isolates of the Porodaedalea Holarctic Group in North America: grouping with P. laricis or with P. gilbertsonii suggests that the isolates belong to these species. The absence of P. pini (in a form recognized in Europe) in North America is suggested.” ‘Phylogenetic relationships among Porodaedalea pini from Poland and related Porodaedalea species’ (2014)
