Now I wish I had preserved this collection. BTW, collection was found on the edge of a sand dune just south of Cape Lookout. Nearby trees included Lodgepole pine, Douglas-fir, California myrtle, and Red alder. This particular section of the dune has already been reclaimed by forest, and had full canopy. Hope I can find more material and provide some microscopy next time.

well developed stipe…

and red bruising on stipe are not characteristic of megaporinus.
