Distribution: L. strigosus is a widely distributed species, occurring on logs and stumps of hardwoods whenever temperature and moisture conditions are suitable.

Spores: The spores are white, smooth, and non-amyloid

Conservation Status: Not of concern

Edibility: Commonly called Panus rudis Fries, Lentinus strigosus is one of several mushrooms with a short, lateral hairy stipe that is usually about the same color as the cap. The species name strigosus is descriptive of the dense covering of stiff hairs over the cap. The cap, when expanded, is somewhat vase-shaped with the edge inrolled, the color is often purple at first, but soon fades to reddish brown, pinkish brown, orangish brown, or tan, and the flesh is white, thin, and rather tough. The gills are close, narrow, colored like the cap at first and then fading to whitish, and have even edges. The taste can be somewhat bitter.
