I caused a good laugh juxtaposing “volva” and “vulva” the other day . . . :)

This mushrooming stuff can lead to some interesting language disasters. :)

Definitely a white mess! :)

Accidentally deleted my last comment trying to edit it. I meant to say Abortiporus is a white mess[…], not abortions are a white mess. Yikes.

sorry to say

I did not tear them up to turn them over. I’m liking any of the members I see with the horn-like projections covered in pores (observation 10549 especially). Hydnellum is the only thing I knew that produced the “bleeding” – this Abortiporus is new to me!

But looks like a good fit!

Thank you Rocky,

some of the observations definitely seem to fit! I’d have hoped the red syrup would have been utterly diagnostic!
