An exsiccatum is what Ret does always want :)

this is really interesting…..I will try to hunt for some more when we get back in a few days…..what does exsiccatum mean?

pelletieri has been reported from North America. I’m not saying that is well-known. Nor do I know where it was reported from. But if it has been confirmed it may be found elsewhere. I certainly am NOT an expert in this field, having to do a Google search to find Phylloporus at all.

It is a Phylloporus

but it doesn’t look like P. rhodoxanthus (BTW, Phylloporus pelletieri is the sole European species of this genus and does not occur elsewhere). There are a heck of other Phyllopori in America … an exsiccatum would be important.

seems close, if I read Michael Kuo’s Key to Phylloporus correctly. If so, a voucher collection is pretty important. Please collect it and try to get a spore print. P. pelletieri is supposed to be found in N.A., but a preserved collection would speak for itself.

Thats what I thought……

Suggests the gilled bolete or similar astrogastrous species.
