over 3 mm thick; tubes white, up to 1.5 cm deep; pore surface white, cream to ochreous; pores variable, round to angular, 1–3 per millimetre, on vertical surfaces sinuous and so elongated as to appear lamellate.
Generative hyphae 2–5 μm diameter, walls thin to thick; skeletal hyphae 3–6 μm diameter; basidiospores cylindrical to narrowly ellipsoid, 10– 14 × 3.5–5.0 μm.
Notes: The large basidiospores of A. albida and A. heteromorpha distinguish- es them from other Antrodia species on hardwoods. Antrodia heteromor- pha is distinguished by its context, which is typically 3–6 mm thick, and its basidiospores, which are 5–7 μm wide.
