No specimen available

Fruiting on a cut section of a Quercus spp. log that was near several other sections that had been placed in a pile together. Three separate fruiting bodies were found on different log sections. All three fruiting bodies were bracket shaped and featured orange-reddish coloration on the top of their pileus and off-white, creamy color on the bottom tissues. The top of the pileus had a glossy appearance. The pileus ranged from 9-12cm in width. The bottom tissues stain brown when bruised. The pores on the undersurface were circular in shape and were .5-1mm in size and had no determinate distribution pattern. The fruiting bodies were harder than the typical fruiting body suggesting the presence of dimitic or trimitic hypae. Two of the fruiting bodies did not have a stipe, while one had a stipe that was eccentric and darker in color than the top of the pileus.
