When: 2010-06-03

Collection location: Strouds Run State Park, Athens, Ohio, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dan Molter (shroomydan)

No specimen available

These were growing from a fallen dead elm. I think they might be the same as a mushroom I found the other day fruiting from a half buried stick under elm.

Note the tiny ‘teeth’ on the undersides of booth mushrooms.

You can see sort of discrete teeth, ie. not fused tubes as in most polypores.
This is too woody-looking to be Phlebia/Merulius

My impression

is a phlebioid/merulioid hymenium on this one. Something in the vicinity of Phlebia incarnata?

Probably Polypore

but not a toothed fungi that I can see. I blew the photo up ALAP (as large as possible). Tips not pointed as in Hericium, nor hollow tubes as typical for Polyporus or Boletaceae, although there is the rare occasion tubed mouth for fused material. This shouldn’t be this hard to identify. But it may be beyond me.
