Haploporus odorus is a perennial hoof-shaped polypore found north of 52 degrees north latitude. There are historical records of its use by the Northern plains native Americans, however observations of this polypore has been limited to British Columbia in North American and northwestern parts of Europe. It grows on Salix sp. (willows) as a high sitting shelf in humid conditions in forest dominated by conifers. This polypore is a white-rot fungus. It has a pale buff to black pileus and a white lower pore layer. The unique features found with H. odorus are the strong smell of aniseed that persists even after drying and dextrinoid spores that are minutely ornamented or echinulated.
Alternate names: Polyporus odorus, Fomitopsis odora, and Trametes odora.
