Description:1569. Polyporus (Resupinati) subgelatinosus, B. & Br.
Orbicularis, margine elevato, subgelatinoso, albo-tomentoso, nigricante; poris griseis, parvis, acie acutis.
On dead wood. Rannoch, Dr. Buchanan White. Apparently parasitic on a decurrent form of P. amorphus.
This singular species forms little pulvinate masses, with an obtuse raised border, which is at first tomentose and pallid, of a subgelatinous consistence, and turning black. The pores are of a pale delicate grey, with an acute even edge, about of an inch in diameter. We cannot point out any species to which it is allied.
