Observation 26471: Phyllotopsis nidulans (Pers.) Singer

When: 2009-10-09

Collection location: Beaver Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Bob Zuberbuhler (Bob Z)

No specimen available

Notes:
Medium size clustered shelf mushroom. The upper surface is very hairy and orangish-tan. The margin is darker than the center and is rolled under. The tan gills converge to the center of a very broad attachment. The flesh is whitish and doesn’t bruise easily. There is no strong odor.

The lack of a strong odor and no bruisability caused some doubt about the identification. What do others think?

Looks identical to what I identified as Phylotopsis nidulans 2009-09-26.
I didn’t notice the odor until I brought some in the house for a spore print.
Then I couldn’t get away from it. I had read that it had an unpleasant taste- however to me it seemed bland.
