Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

Coincidently these were found in the same area and date a year earlier of MO# 7649.
They appear to be the same species although these were somewhat smaller (8-15 cm in dia.) and one was semi-circular and obviously growing on above ground wood. The largest saucer-shaped one had more distinct raised hairs on the cap which can be seen in the first photo. The pores seemed a little larger than the 2007 specimens. The tough flesh was white and I was able to get a white spore print. The spores were small and elliptical,appeared smooth and with an apical germ pore.
Can’t seem to find any matches in the literature that I have.

It wasn’t growing at the base of a standing tree.

I’m pretty sure it was a fallen log and #7649 appeared to be on buried wood.

only grow at the base of a stump and not at any other place, Not on a felled log but rather a standing one.

but it looks like a young bridgeoporus which starts as a yellow fuzzy polypore and builds up algae over time to become what it looks like. was the fuzz reallly thick? on the map it has it at 5400ft, thats near the end range of one. Was it on or near noble fir? you can see photos from my find.
