Observation 32341: Trechispora hymenocystis (Berk. & Broome) K.H. Larss.

Notes:
This was found under a log in the older, unburned forest. The spiny spores and the shallow tubes, and habitat lead me to call it T. mollusca, which I thought was the only described tubular species in the genus. But I sent ITS sequence and the links to this observation to Dr. Karl-Henrick Larrson, and here is what he says:

“I have a lot of Trechispora ITS sequences and they show a remarkably high diversity. I include our mollusca sequence and I also checked your mollusca [i.e., this collection] against our sequences and my conclusion is that it is hymenocystis. I would have suggested that already from the photo: very soft and delicate, irregular pores, no sterile margin. Mollusca usually looks more like a typical monomitic, resupinate Poria.”
