Who: Chris Hay (hayfield)

Specimen available

September 20, 1971
Duck Mountain Provincial Forest
bracket fungus
F P Ralston

Unidentified specimen from The Manitoba Museum’s collections.

Funalia hispida seems to be a strange name, not present in Index Fungorum and without authority here or in Arora. The specimen keyed to this from Arora and a google image search yields some similar looking photos. The top has zones that vary in hairiness from short and velvety to longer and more sparse. The pores are fairly large. Note the grass that it engulfed as it grew, suggesting it was near the base of a stump.


cue card dimensions are 3″ × 5″ (7.6cm x 12.7cm)

There isn’t too much info available on these… but from some googling looks like Coriolopsis trogii would be the more conservative (safer) ID.

might be Coriolopsis trogii (Trametes trogii).
