Polyporus craterellus is a smaller species. The coloration and texture of the cap is very characteristic of Polyporus udus.

it’s conceivable that in cross section this would be shown to have tubes. let me emphasize that this had the fleshy consistency of a bolete. i’m disappointed to only have supposition and speculation to go on at this point. the best I can hope for is to prioritize this as one of several collections to revisit at the herbarium this winter.

wish i had one
