Neolentinus ponderosus

Neolentinus ponderosus


Gilled mushrooms enjoying a Sunday brunch via some dead log. Lovely. As the scientific name suggests, N. ponderosus is found on ponderosa pine, which is more than abundant in the Santa Rita Mountains where it was found.


Growing on a fallen log.


With age, the white cap starts to bruise yellow in areas, and the margin (edge of the cape where the two halves meet) begins to go from convex (outwardly-spreading) to plane (level).
