Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

While the morphological habit is Polyporales sensu lato, B. occidentalis is actually in Russulales and closely related to Lactarius. The name Bondarzewia mesenterica has long been misapplied to B. occidentalis. Chen et al.1 Per Ginns2 the latex oozing from cuts in the hymenium is a good field character (describing B. mesenterica).
