A few months ago someone made an MO post that looked a lot like I. obliquus, but turned out to be something else. I think the observation was a growth on a poplar.

No idea.

I took this picture as I was leaving the campground around 3 months ago.

Probably I. obliquus.

Birch is the most common host for I. obliquus. What does the interior look like?

Probably just light.

looks different than the first. Maybe just the way the light was falling on the subject?
