Proposed Names

29% (1)
Recognized by sight: an interesting polypore, with a very hairy top and deep, asymmetrical pores that subtly change color with angle of view.
5% (3)
Recognized by sight: If it grows on hardwoods, and the cap surface has setal hyphae with hooks, it could be Inonotus cuticularis. Eh.. on a second thought, the pores look to big for that one.

I brought it home…shall I bring it (as well as the other curious crust) to SOMA camp this weekend, as interesting examples?
