Need help with mushroom ID

Recommended Posts

Those are probably last years Picipes/Royoporus badius. Really old fruit bodies like these are unlikely to produce a spore print. However, if you harvest a fresher one, position it with the underside (pores/fertile surface) oriented downward, and allow it remain like that for possibly several days, then a spore print may form.  Most gilled mushrooms readily drop spores when harvested ay=t maturity. Polypores can take a longer time. 

I often see new P/R badius fruit bodies forming in mid spring. They grow very slowly and persist for very long period of time.
