Phellinus Ferruginosus

Red upper shelving in pleural “waves” is similar to new growth on pomaceus and other some other phellinus. However, pomaceus generally adheres and decomposes upon prunus.

This Ferruginosus is a crust that forms in alluvial forests on most hardwoods. This large find is hosted by multiple Alnus Rubra(red alder).
