Comments: There are few polypores with so characteristic, aromatic and pleasant smell. To my experience only the scent of Gloeophyllum odoratum can compete with it. Once one experiences it, he will likely remember it forever.
Fungi were growing in a few groups with two to several fruit bodies, partly confluent; pilei diameter 5-8 cm; stipe 3-6 cm long and up to 1.3 cm in diameter; pore layer up to 2.8 mm thick, bruising yellow, pores 3-4/mm in average, small and round with entire dissepiments near the edge of the pilei and larger and more angular with deeply lacerate dissepiments near the stipe; pore layer has a thin darker layer above it; dried pilei hard, completely yellow; SP too faint to enable color determination.
