Laetiporus sp.?

Recommended Posts

This looks like the early stages of a rather small fruit body of Meripilus sumstinei (Black-staining Polypore). A few of the fronds show darkening along the fringes. Otherwise, the growth pattern and ground color look like this species. Rub the margin of a frond and see if it darkens within 30 minutes. 

I generally don't harvest M. sumstinei for eating. But, someone once gave me some Meripilus jerky that was cured in Thai spices. It was really good and had a nice long shelf-life.
