ok its in the fridge.
Good to hear you have a piece. I’m going to see if I can find someone who might be interested in it. I expect they will not want it dried since they may want fresh spores to do mating studies. It should last for a few days in the fridge.
Ok, I took some out of my compost pile and moved it inside to dry. Its in pretty good shape. What should I do with it once its dry?
I’ve never seen a pure yellow Laetiporus that was this mature. Don’t suppose you kept a specimen? I know that the recent breakup of Laetiporus is supported by mating studies. Does anyone know how to test for mating compatibility? Presumably you’d need a collection of samples of known species. I wonder if there’s anyone still working with this group who could do such a test.
