Observation 32959: Panellus stipticus (Bull.) P. Karst.

Found this growing with Stereum sp. Looks a little like Lentinus strigosus but there is no fine hairs on the cap but more like granules or scales. The caps are in a cluster not shelved. caps Brown with a violet tent to them with small scales some are starting to crack. The gills close narrow Tan. Unfortunately this specimen is siting in a coffee cup on this vary same log. So when the snow melts again and im able to get out I will try and retrieve it for a spore print and some microscopy work.

Oops brain fart That is what I was trying to think of. . Looks good to me. I have to go with that, These are actually soft but they have been there for a while.I have often found this in association with Stereum. Is there some sort of a relationship situation with the two I find them often together
