Hi Herb ,

This keyed out to Phellinus texanus which is now deprecated I see—preferred name Fomitiporia texana. I don’t remember how I got to Fomitiporia robusta but I must have been steered there during the process of proposing P. texanus on MO? Why doesn’t it show up anywhere as a deprecated synonym?
