Thickness (Context and pore layer of individual mushroom caps or conks; Not groups)
The thickness of individual fruiting structures can be used to separate out many of the wood decay fungi. The thickness is represents the measurement of individual fruiting structures such as an individual mushroom or single conk in a group of conks. The general classifications are thin (less then ½ inch thick), moderate ( ½ to 2 inches thick), or thick (greater than 2 inches thick). The measurements are applicable to mature fruiting structures.
