I am always amazed with variery of mushrooms coming from the different habitats and still being the same species. Thank you for the comments.
In Croatia, we eat, for example,Helvella crispa, whereas the other claim that it was poisoned!

looks different than ours

Hi. One of the interesting things about Mushroom Observer is that sometimes we cn see the same species from different continents can look very different. Our Polyporus arcularius in easter North America has very dark scales on the cap. I wonder if they really are the same thing?

Neat stalked polypore, a new one on me!

I was surprised to read that it actually occurs in N. America, too…mostly East and in the PNW, which is why I’ve never seen it…always nice to find a recognizeable polypore, tho, with its large pores and fringed cap edge…we can’t all be Tom Volk!
