An old museum specimen in need of identification. Since M.O. does not allow for anything collected earlier than 1980 I used the date this entry was made online.

A number of species of Poria are listed in Bisby et al 1938 “The Fungi of Manitoba and Saskatchewan” but I have no idea how to distinguish them or if modern taxonomy has rendered those names meaningless.

cue card is 3″ × 5″ (7.6cm x 12.7cm)
another angle, note finger print from collecting and bruising yellow brown to dark red brown
