Smoky Polypore

Bjerkandera adusta


Tree-rot fungus that causes white-rot. Grows in a bracket or shelf-like pattern, fused with other caps.


Image searching turns up many pictures with a dark cap and light underside. However, Mushroom expert (see additional link in references) says it has a contrasting dark pore surface with a light colored cap surface. This likely could be a different Polyporale fungus.
