Status:

Unidentified Trametes can be posted at Trametes species. Note that DNA analysis has shown that T. gibbosa is a different species than some listed as synonyms, but those names appear in common references when T. gibbosa was intended (J. Solem, pers. comm.).

Description:

On hardwood stumps and logs, sometimes on pine. Dorsal surface: White to yellowish-buff, may have concentric texture zones, bumpy surface; lumpy at attachment; ventral (pore) surface whitish; shape of pore openings round, angular, or maze-like slots--all three types may be present on single fruiting body (J. Solem, pers. comm.).

There are 90 records in the project database.
