Skeletocutis pink-gray (Skeletocutis carneogrisea)
Skeletokutis pink-gray belongs to tinder fungi belonging to the thyromycetoid morphotype.
It is found everywhere. Prefers coniferous wood (especially spruce, pine). It can grow in large numbers on deadwood, wood damaged and decomposed by trichaptum. Also grows on dead Trichaptum basidiomas.
Fruit bodies are prostrate, sometimes have bent edges. The caps are very thin, they can be shell-shaped. Color – pale whitish, brown. Young mushrooms have slight pubescence, later the cap is completely bare. The diameter reaches about 3 cm.
The pink-gray hymenophore of skeletokutis in young mushrooms is beautiful, with a pink tint. Old mushrooms have a brown, dirty color, with well visible pores. Its thickness is up to about 1 mm.
In settlements, it is often interspersed with specimens of the fir trichaptum (Trichaptum abietinum), very similar to it. Difference: the color of the cap of the trichptum is purple, the pores are very strongly split.
Also, the pink-gray skeletocutis is similar to the shapeless skeletocutis (Skeletocutis amorpha), but the hymenophore tubes are yellow or even orange in color.
