thanks Danny, Your point has been taken. I wasn’t careful enough when I made the suggestion. I was going only on the photo, with disregard for the part of the world each was found.. Thank you got your detailed reply. A learning experience !

is a circumpolar species in the north temperate zone. Indian polypores, much like other Indian macrofungi, are highly unlikely to be IDed confidently by matching photos with guidebooks/websites intended for areas thousands of miles away with entirely different floristic and ecological makeups.

that is not to say that this is 100% not S. pachydon, just that considerably more supporting information than what is presently contained in this observation will be required to prove that it is S. pachydon, considering its northern temperate distribution. there may be publications out there which extend its range to more subtropical and tropical latitudes, but none of my references indicate this. then again, none of my references are on Indian/Asian fungi specifically.
