The rainy season has arrived, and I’m hoping this thing will reappear this summer.

Trouble ahead for this house owner. Sarah, your observation of this species is the furthest north in MO.

Daniel, the hymenium was toothed.

I figured it was another polypore, then I saw the underside and it was hydnoid. Check out the last three photos. It smelled peppery, if that helps.

but without a photo of the hymenium (the underside or pore-bearing surface)…

Many polypores are wood degraders. This could be an indication of wood rot in the affected wood.
