Thanks Alan for clearing that up with me. Here in Cambria, California we then have Gymnopilus ventricosus in association with our Monterey Pine stand.

Gymnopilus junonius is a smaller species known from Europe. Gymnopilus spectabilis is a larger species, but the west coast non staining Gymnopilus that grows to a very large size and are usually on conifer have been going under G. ventricosus lately.

aka, G. junonius?
