D. quercina’s pore surface has a thick-walled, maze-ilke configuration

whereas the pores of D. confragosa appear more slot-like and with thinner walls between the pores … at least that’s the distinction that always helps me to differentiate the two species. I was lucky to find a D. quercina specimen once that had a fresh enough pore surface to provide a good illustration of this. OB # 211868. Of course, to add to the difficulty differentiating between them, no two are ever exactly alike=)

Some attributes make it look like Daedaleopsis confragosa
