Panus fasciatus – Hairy Trumpet

On decaying wood. This is one of the few really ‘hairy’ agarics, having dense pale brown hairs all over the brown cap and stem. The cap is strongly inrolled when young, maturing to a deep funnel-shape. Brown gills extend down the stem and, when fresh, often have a purple tinge. In dry conditions the stem peels like fibrous bark.
