P. trogii

“Seemingly restricted to roots and stumps of Abies alba. Domanski et al. (1973) also reports Picea as a host, but we have seen no specimen with an indication of this host, and all other authors (see above) report A. alba as the only host. Distribution. Restricted to Central Europe and West Asia, following its host from Spain and France through Central Europe to Caucasus and Turkey and further to Uzbekistan. Remarks. This species is easy to recognize in the field due to the dark-coloured stipitate basidiocarp growing on or close to Abies. It seems to prefer calcareous soil. Podofomes pyrenaicus Rath was described from Northern Spain and should be separated from P. trogii by having larger spores and growing on Fagus sylvatica. However, since one of us (L.R.) has found typical P. trogii under Abies in exactly the same locality, we are slightly reluctant to accept P. pyrenaicus as a separate species.”
