Observation 297138: Polyporales sensu lato

Notes:
~3 pores per mm. soft, squishy consistency. vaguely acetone-like, sweet odor, reminiscent of Amylocystis lapponica upper surface somewhat stiffer/sturdier. note very thin context.

composed of at least two types of hyphae, one wider and darkly pigmented, the other hyaline and thinner, both with clamps, some hyphae (a third type?) appaering finely encrusted (see 2nd and 3rd to last micrographs); cystidia not observed, unless the very long hyphae found around the pore mouths — some of which are apically inflated — are cystidia (see third micrograph); spores hyaline, subcylindrical to narrowly ellipsoid, some with guttules, a few appearing weakly dextrinoid; all other tissues inamyloid.

Substrate: fallen, decorticate, presumably hardwood log

Habitat: old growth oak forest in urban area, mixed with maple, birch and beech

Ecoregion: border of Southern Great Lakes Forest (NA0414) and Eastern Great Lakes Lowland Forest (NA0407)

Collectors: D. Newman
