The 5th romanian mushrooms combo I present to you.
These are a few from the many polypores one may find sticking on the trees or fallen branches or even on the ground. Polypores are mainly of woody or ruberry consistence, thing that makes them inedible. However there are some species that are quite good at taste, like Polyporus squamosus or Laetiporus sulphureus that have a soft flesh in early stages.
However, none of the ones presented here are edible.
Here are their names from left to right and up to down:

1. Trametes hirsuta
2. Trametes versicolor
3. Ganoderma resinaceum
4. Ganoderma luciliae
5. Ganoderma applanatum
6. Polyporus leptocephalus
7. Polyporus brumalis
8. Fomitopsis pinicola
9. Lenzites betulina

I got some more polypores in my photobank, which I'll try to present you in the future itno another combo.
Cheers to all and enjoy!

A very interesting with all the identification.
Nick :-)

Une magnifique collection et très bel ensemble très didactique.
Bonne journée.

Buna Petru..
Foarte frumoasa imaginea ta.. Imi place cum ai strans toate ciupercile astea..
O idee buna..
Numai bine,

Hello Petru,
This is a nice collection... and a fine collage!
I understand they are only to admire by the eye and not taste...
Colourful, fine details and well done!

Hi Petru,
Very nice collage of different kinds of mushrooms. Well captured and presented. TFS

Hi Petru,
an excellent study of the various types of mushrooms in your area.I like the colour variety you have in this grouping.Tfs. Bob

This one is a beautiful and informative multi-presentation and would be pleased to see more polypores from your collection.
It is lovely to have them grouped this way, to have a general look for ident.
Thanks and best regards.

I love your mushrooms. You must be a FUN GUY!

Petru, primero gracias por tus comentarios. Creo que no conocía tu galeria. Excelente colección de hongos que crecen en la madera, lástima que ninguno de ellos sea comestible. Excelente documento. Un saludo desde España: J. Ignasi Tejedor

Hello Petru,
Great collage ! I like this kind of picture, it is so instructive and in the spirit of TN. The comparison with the different species of Polypores is interesting.
Bravo my friend and TFS.

Hi Petru,

I see, you like also FUNGIS. I like your collage. You use a nice framework. Just what Pablominto says:"This is a nice collection". Regards and TFS Bob

Dear friend Petru,

Aesthetic and interesting collage, as always from you - and this time about my personal favorites, polypores. Thanks so much! But I have to criticize the otherwise useful note a bit:

1. What is Ganoderma luciliae??! Even the Index Fungorum doesn't know this name! Probably it was a misspelling and you wanted to write Ganoderma lucidum (Curtis) P. Karst.

2. Your "Ganoderma resinaceum" seems Perenniporia fraxinea (Bull.) Ryvarden, no doubt. It grows mostly on ash (Fraxinus spp.) and locust (Robinia spp.).

I hope to see more polypore photos of you soon. Tfs this collection.

You said you found Flammulina velutipes on New Year's Eve, in the downtown. Please have a look on this pic: photographed on 2nd of January, this year, in a cemetary in the downtown. :) It was my 1st fungi photo in 2010. :)

All the best, friendly regards, László
