Recognized by sight: We had the same sort of rhizomorphous Polyporus at our site in Ecuador — we collected them as Xylaria in our survey, and only discovered later that they were not. Our sequence data led us to P. guianensis, but P. rhizomorphus is pretty similar and there’s not really sequence data to rule that out as a possibility in our case. Yours could be either, or some other rhizoid-forming Polyporus, even. I think P. leprieurii does this too.

See http://mushroomobserver.org/158719. Different observation, but the telephodes are there too.

Check this one out: http://mushroomobserver.org/110407

Looks like P. dictyopus is the current name for P. rhizomorphus.
