Kingdom Fungi   >   Phylum Basidiomycota   >   Class Agaricomycetes   >   Order Russulales   >   Family Stereaceae   >   Genus Stereum   

Status:

Stereum lobatum is part of the Stereum ostrea complex. Recent studies have suggested that Stereum ostrea may not occur in North America (e.g., Delong-Duhon & Bagley, 2020, unpublished)

Description:

Stereum lobatum is covered in dense, matted hairs that wear off in bands. The context under the hairs is chestnut (brown) in color. The undersurface stains yellow when bruised (MycoGuide). A hand lens may be necessary to distinguish this species from similar species of Stereum.

There are 59 records in the project database.
