Black-footed Polypore

Royoporus badius


Cap was mostly light orange-brown with a darker brown area in the middle. Pores were brown and did not bruise. Cap was approximately 8cm.


Growing on rotting wood in a mixed forest.


The taxonomy for this species is a bit confusing as the name has recently changed, or might be changing soon? I think that Royoporus badius is the currently correct name for this mushroom, but it might also be synonymous with Polyporus picipes and Polyporus badius.

Thanks maplemoth. This orange and brown mushroom goes perfect with the fall colors since the leaves are already starting to change here.
