It depends on the species.

H. vesparia, sometimes refered to as honeycomb fungus, has pores up to 3mm wide, whereas H. hydnoides has approximately 4 per mm. I was going on shape mostly. Of course, I’m not one to match wits with anyone on woody polypores, at least not beyond the bare basics.

Do Hexagonias usually have much larger pores?

I didn’t make a collection or make any measurements, however there were probably about 2 pores/mm, and the entire fruiting body was maybe 20-25 cm.
