This species is quite common in Northeastern Pennsylvania as are Black Locust trees.

They are separate species. Fulvifomes rimosus is from Europe, it is not known to occur in North America according to the latest molecular evidence. Fulvifomes robiniae is the type species of the genus Fulvifomes , it was described from eastern North America and appears to be common on locust in this region.

Has fulvifomes robiniae become the genus and specific epithet for Phellinus rimosus, or are they still considered to be separate species?
