Distribution & ecology – Pantropical, on dead hardwoods (Ryvarden & Johansen 1980:291). We collected this species many times in Mexico, Belize, and Jamaica but only once in Florida, in a typical man-influenced locality.
Comments – Common in South America and resembling the boreal Trametes hirsuta (Wulfen) Lloyd but with even more pronounced and more hirsute zones on pileus surface and larger, less regular pores that are often a bit elongated in various directions. The broader spores of C. polyzona are narrowly elliptic but not cylindric.
