Sava, I find the Polypores the toughest to work with. The Basidia are small and hard to find – in all cases you need a young fruitbody. An old Rule of Thumb is – if you can’t see spores then you might as well toss it.

Thanks, Darvin. I struggled tonight, but couldn’t see much under the scope. I pinched tiny specks from the hymenium, but was able to find only three spores, if they are spores at all [pics]. No basidia, cystidia; only hyphae, all looking the same, no clamp connections. So, I’m afraid this will remain a “Fungi sp.”.

Gloeophyllum protractum is an idea to look into. It can fruit on decorticated Populus.
