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.

It is rather tough, so doesn’t really seem like a jelly, but microscopy confirms that it is a jelly fungus. Has a row of basidia, then a layer of jelly, and the sterigmata sticks through the layer of jelly to form spores. On hardwood, likely oak. Came into the Santa Cruz Fungus Fair.

Nudibranch Orientella trilineata (northern form, about 10mm long) & look-alike amphipod Podocerus cristatus. Scanned from a 35 mm slide I took in the lab in 1984. I had found the specimens in close proximity to each other a few days earlier in the low intertidal at Middle Cove, Cape Arago, Oregon. The amphipod (and her recently hatched juveniles, visible at lower right when viewed large) are on a piece of the outer tube of the polychaete Pista elongata; the slug is on a piece of the hydroid Abietinaria.

Notice the white head tentacles of the slug and the white antennae on the amphipod. Here's what one form of the amphipod looks like in central California, where the southern form of O. trilineata ( with chromium orange on their rhinophores and cephalic tentacles) is prevalent: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/1103734

Farther south, near Puerto Vallarta, the amphipod lacks white lines, just like the abundant local aeolids!:https://www.flickr.com/photos/8723238@N07/2686177157
