Antrodia sinuosa does not have clamps

except in some rare cases such as
Mushroom Observer is a great program, but I hate its MONOPOLY part, where anybody can change the label “mir nichts dir nichts”. In regular herbarium work something like that would not be allowed. MO, unfortunately, does not know how the annotations are dealt with in real herbaria. Mind you, we greatly appreciate any suggestions, but it is the MO fault that it does not handle annotations properly. Adolf

I don’t know Jim Ginns, but I know Antrodia sinuosa pretty well..

1. has much smaller spores
2. doesn’t have clamps on the skeletal hyphae

Should I repeat it again?

This particular specimen was identified as Anthrodia sinuata by Jim Ginns, the senior author of

“Ginns, J. and M. N. L. Lefebvre. 1993. Lignicolous Corticioid Fungi (Basidiomycota) of North America. Mycologia Memoir No. 19. APS Press, St. Paul, Minn. 247p.”

I hope, he knew what he was doing. AC

This particular collection was identified by Jim Ginns as Anthrodia sinuosa and the Oligoporus sp. is quite a nonsense. Adolf
