Under oaks. The mushrooms are all white. The color you see in the photos is coming from the sun. Bad lighting. None of them have any of the color that velosa gets. I know velosa can be white, but I'm not convinced.

This rather intriguing purple "mold"(?) was growing on bark at the base of a tanoak (Notholithocarpus densiflorus).

The flash brought out the color better...the color was more subtle-looking in the low light beneath the forest canopy.

Description

This tripartite/quadripartite system seems to be found wherever certain Fomes/Fomitopsis species grow and, eventually, rot. I have now seen this or something like it in the PNW, upstate New York and the Sierras. It involves said polypore substrate, Hypocrea (aff.?) pulvinata, and one or more uniperitheciate sordariomycetes with long, slender ostiolar necks. John Plischke had species level IDs for what he believed to be two species co-occurring on this materialMelanospora lagenaria and Ophiostoma polyporicola — at least one of which may be present in this observation as well. The Melanospora is supposed to have paler, oranger necks, as opposed to the darker Ophiostoma. If both are present in this specimen, I can’t tell them apart. Maybe this is neither! Perhaps John will weigh in himself at some point.

Joshua Birkebak (Shua) was given a piece to culture before we had any names beyond guesses at family for the tiny ascos. Awaiting word back on what he finds.

Description

Large, imbricate-pileate polypores growing on cottonwoods (Populus )
Flesh thick, tough-punky, cap surface slightly fibrillose to smooth.
Flesh 2.5 cm deep, tube layer 5 mm deep.
Pore mouths small, subtly angular (not perfectly round), 3-4/mm.
Fresh specimens juicy, with strong almond extract/marzipan/maraschino odor when cut.
Pores turning yellow-orange when dried.

Microscopy:
Hyphae mostly of one type, simple, unseptate, with thick walls. No clamps observed. No cystidia observed. Spores smooth, ellispoid to long-ellipsoid, 7 x 3 microns or longer. Inamyloid.

At first I thought they might be Osteina due to general appearance, but not growing on conifer, not drying bone-hard, and with different micro characters.

Comments from polypore expert Otto Miettinen:

"the fruitbody
structure, spore shape and hyphal structure point towards Polyporus (in the wide, traditional sense). The hyphae look like skeleto-binding
hyphae typical of Polyporus and the core polyporoid clade / polyporaceae
in the modern sense."

The blue staining of the cut flesh can be seen here:

https://vimeo.com/137893789

No visible spore print; specimen probably too old. [CORRECTION: Spore print faintly yellow overnight.]

Spore microscopy will be performed later and this observation will be updated.

Growing under Populus tremuloides and Abies concolor.

Pores and all parts of the flesh stain blue with bruising/cutting in 15-30 seconds.

A portion of the dried specimen will be sent to David Arora for sequencing, and the remainder will be put in the Gilbertson Herbarium at the University of Arizona.

At the time of creation, this was the most westerly and southerly observation in North America on Mushroom Observer, and according to Arora, it may be the first collection west of the Mississippi River.

ADDENDUM 9-6-2015: Spore measurements were performed. Description: 7.8 [8.0; 10.3] 10.8 × 4.9 [5.1; 6.1] 6.2 µm; Q = 1.38 [1.46; 1.77] 1.90; N = 60; C = 95%; Me = 8.9 × 5.5 µm; Qe = 1.61

Not staining. This has the appearance of a Leucoagaricus but it is not. The gills are sinuate/adnate. The spores ianmyloid. Pileipellis is a cutis with erect terminal element, clamped. It has similar large and plentiful cheilo and pleurocystidia, tending to thick-walled. The sequence, and the micro-morphology, say this is an undescribed species of Albomagister. The macro-morphology is not like A. subaustralis.

I was shocked to see around a dozen of these diminutive mushrooms coming up through the oak duff in late June. Their spores are bright yellow and although there was some bruising to the gills, the stipes did not change color even an hour after being cut in half. The stipes are striate and yellow along their length. I tried keying them out using "California Mushrooms: The comprehensive identification guide" but I kept coming up with some kind of Xerocomellus, but the lack of red on the stipe seems to eliminate that genus.

I'm not sure if there was one Gray Fox or two. I first spotted a fox jotting up the trail with what looked like a rat or a squirrel in its mouth. I managed one photo of that, but was annoyed that I'd had yet another fox encounter that resulted in a barely passable photo, even by my lax standards. Then, a few minutes later, I came upon the fox, or a second one, hunting in the stream. That one did that for a bit, then jotted (foxes only jot. It's the preferred verb...) across the trail, where it posed nicely in a patch of owl's clover, and then went up the slope.
