Meripilus Sumstinei ?

Recommended Posts

Found these in Hampton VA growing off a root a few inches from a cut oak or maple stump can't remember which one. There were two other bigger clusters that were fan shaped as hen or chicken of the woods would grow. Has a very earthy aroma and leathery stringy texture when peeled. It did start staining black after handling it and was dark black within 30 mins or so. I thinking black staining polypore. I have a few great uses if it is and will share the recipes once done.

I think so. It looks like there's some dark staining in a few areas. Rub the marginal area of a frond and wait 3 minutes to see if a stain develops. Usually, M. sumstinei will stain.
