Observation 18782: Polyporus tuberaster (Jacq. ex Pers.) Fr.

When: 2007-01-10

Collection location: Santa Cruz, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Viess (amanitarita)

No specimen available

this was a very tough mushroom, both cap and sclerotium; hard to see the pores in this shot, but it dosn’t seem to be a very good macro or tactile match for my recent “tuberaster” posting. spore confirmation would convince me, tho.

exact date of Fair estimated.
