Pluteus is often a secondary degrader of wood.

Typically Pluteus is found after several other fungi have fruited on the substrate, and Pluteus is one of the final ones. Very unusual to find bark still on the wood at this stage. I find P. cervinus growing inside rotting Red alder stumps after other fungi have rotted nearly the entire remains.
