No specimen available

This organism was found on deadwood on September 12, 2014 at Indiana Dunes National lakeshore headquarters. This area is an oak savanna. The location of the stipe was sessile. There was no true pileus because the general shape of the organism was a shelf. The surface of the top was pubescent. It colors alternated between gray, tan, lime green, and a darker green towards the end which was closest to the tree it was pulled off of. These colors were alternating in thin horizontal lines fanning outward. The margin of this shelf fungus was rimos. It had overlapping, which created slight indents further in on the organism. The underneath side consisted of pores which were a dark tan in color and was concolorous. This organism had a usual mushroom smell.
