Write specifics down on paper and include with voucher collection.

I know little about OZ polypores, but this looks to be a nominee for a species novum.

Yep, it’s drying away…

I only could slice about a quarter just because it was really difficult to do. Where shall I post it to?

I think a voucher collection is a good idea, Lucy.

I don’t know what this could be. Something between Albatrellus and Lycoperdon. It looks like it has hymenium near the base.

I went back to collect it and take more pics…

It was so strange when I cut it in half. The pics are on my camera so can’t upload them today. It was almost wood-like, with layers like wood has when cut. And it was almost as hard as wood! I needed two hands to cut it in half.

then something near Lycoperdon, I think, Lucy. The spines that should be present on the cap are missing, and round circular impressions of where they were are producing an exudate, I think. I’ve never seen a Lycoperdon with an exudate before.
