Observation 50161: Trametes Fr.

When: 2010-08-07

Collection location: Eastern Ontario, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These brownish brackets were growing on a stump on a golf course. The stump was decorticated and numerous tree species grew nearby so the type of wood cannot be positively identified. (Tree species nearby include definitely quaking aspen and red pine and probably white pine, birch, maple, spruce, and Balsam fir. At least one of spruce or fir was present.)

The tops of the brackets are oddly fuzzy, with brown fuzz-ball growths apparent in the second shot if examined at full size. The underside had cream, somewhat irregular mid-size pores and lots of spiderwebs.

Recognized by sight: Reminds me a little bit of T. trogii, but that has larger pores. Or sort of like T. pubescens, though that species seems less tufted than this, maybe? I am not familiar with either species, so I’ll leave it at genus.
