No specimen available

Sorry for bad quality, but photos were taken at night at home after a long day of microscope work. I hope to not forget to take pictures of this species in full daylight when I next find it. It is quite rare and seems mostly to grow on Pinus in Europe. Characteristic are the sinuous pores, the whitish to creamish fruitbody and usually growth high up in the crown of the tree on rather small twigs that come to the ground by wind breaking, rot or the like.

But I have found it a few times before. Near this place and where I live there is a former fitness parcours that is growing into a wilderness where I find many rare species. But I agree: in the last years this species is getting rare again.
Most places are extinct.
I kept this one outside in hope it will start to sporulate when weather conditions are getting better.

I guessed so

I didn’t think that you’d mix up the species. It’s not something you see every day, so I must congratulate! I have only found it once, in 1993…

I think you are right

I messed up names. I always mess up ramentacea and sinuosa.

Are you sure

about sinuosa? It’s a common, widely resupinate species on conifer logs.

I think this looks more like Antrodia ramentacea (rare and smallish), reminding of heteromorpha, but resupinate and almost exclusively on pine.
