Great work on polypores! I will look forward to your book release, feel free to email when that occurs.

Good to know someone else is excited about polypores. Most of my time is spent collecting, photographing and describing them for a book.

I do..

I wanna sequence it…and get a better data file on all polypores for their medicinal properties and uses. Fungi will save us all if we intellectualize it’s uses beyond just finding and naming them…that is my desire, to help fungi, whose been screaming out at us, help people and our planet. So, a sequencing i will go, a sequencing i will go…. ; )

Thanks for your input and knowledge Thomas, much appreciated.

I’m sure there is a sequence around for it. I have a specimen but I feel no need to sequence it.

Thanks Chaelthomas…

I did look at that obs….thank you, very helpful…oh, and I was using “rare” synonymously with “not common”…..but i think we understood i meant the same thing. Apparently this fungi’s name’s origin is Swiss….wonder if this species i found has ever been sequenced. I have sample of it, will employ and hopefully attain the final answer

Look at obs 290685. It’s not a common mushroom but I don’t know if I’d call it rare around here. My obs was from Olympic mountains, wa.

Thanks for the proposal. From the link to mushroom expert … Kuo says this is rare in PNW, and microscopy would be big help. Gonna get to working on that….
