Habitat/range: On conifers and hardwoods, causing a brown cubical rot. Widespread in the southern half of BC and on Haida Gwaii. Widespread elsewhere in western North America.Basidiomata effuse, some narrowly reflexed and nodulose, frequently imbri- cate, separable, often in patches 15–20 cm diameter on the cut ends of logs, or in larger patches on lower surfaces of logs and branches; taste slightly bitter; pileus surface ochreous to pale cinnamon brown, finely tomentose, becom- ing glabrous; context white to pale brownish yellow, tough, 1–4 mm thick; tubes pale brownish yellow, up to 5 mm deep (deeper if on nearly vertical surfaces, and tending also to be split down one side); pore surface white to pale brown, some with red tints caused by contaminating moulds; pores
2–3 per millimetre, round, edges thick. Generative hyphae 2–4 μm diameter; skeletal hyphae predominate, 2–5 μm
diameter; basidiospores cylindrical to narrowly ellipsoid, 6–10 × 2–4 μm.
Notes: Antrodia serialis often grows on the ends of cut logs, from which it is practically impossible to remove except in small pieces. The larger basidi- ospores (8–12 × 3.0–4.5 μm) of A. variiformis distinguish it from A. serialis. Antrodia albida also has pores 2–3 per millimetre and when on conifers can be confusingly similar to A. serialis, but A. albida has wider basidiospores. Basidiomata on hardwoods can be confusingly similar to A. oleracea. In A. oleracea, skeletal hyphae are rare in the trama.
