I’m not familiar with Lentinus strigellus and the only photo I could find was on this site; http://home.arcor.de/Daemmrich/images/L_strigellus.html which shows a very hairy fruiting body. The specimens in the Observation did seem to fit the general description for L. strigosus in Bessette et al “Mushrooms of the Southeastern United States”, and they were more fuzzy-hairy than long-hairy. Apparently the L. strigellus is a tropical or subtropical species but has it ever been reported in the Gulf States of the US?

Hi, maybe this specie is Lentinus strigellus, is a closely specie but L. strigosus is diferent by the metuloids, and L. strigellus has gloeocistidia.

Wow Ron, great Lentinus!

I especially like their little purple “primordia”, scattered about on the log.

More to the point, what are you doing in TX., in June?!! Hot enough for ya?
