Who: Steve Nelsen (sfnelsen)

No specimen available

Sarcodon scabrosus, I think, but I am no expert at these! Cap ~5,5 stem 3 × 1 at top. spores light brown, nodulose-bumpy, ~5-6 microns. KOH on cap very dark blackish brown, on flesh a lighter color but still dark brown. This is seen every year at Walking Iron.

and spore length is OK, but what tree is the host? Does it have bitter taste?
S. scabrosus should grow with pine, but there are reports from hardwood areas (the same or possibly a closely related species?). Sarcodon isn’t a well investigated genus..

Do you have access to “Notes on the pileate hydnums” vol. I-V in Lloydia?
I’m curious to know what was written there, but can’t find it online…
