I am getting use to the name changes on some of the species, and goodness knows this one has gone through many. While I understand the reasoning for nomenclature (finding the first person to site it), I sure wish this one was something like Polyporus pedinigris, as its black foot is its most striking feature.

Delicate or fine head??? Come on…

“Broken branch lover” might be a close second.
