Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]
A dead tree near one of the false morel patches is showing signs of producing a crop of conks this year. At least two species seem to be represented. More photos throughout the year as the growth of the conks progresses.
The first image is only a thumbnail.
The third and fourth are from May 11. They had gotten slightly larger. I got a halfway-decent shot of the underside of the largest (~1") one (after many attempts). The fourth photo is what the camera took; the third is cropped to show just the fungus.
It appears to have a partial veil, or something like that.
May 25: new photos. Fruitbodies quit growing so I pulled one off the tree and took it out to the parking lot to cut in half and photograph.
First thing to note: there may be a stem of sorts that was embedded in the tree.
Tubes white. Spore deposit on tough, thick veil looks brown. Tube mouths tinged brown. Next pic, tore a strip off the veil on one half to see brown tube mouths, pinhole-sized circular pores, thick-walled tubes.

Can’t really get good photos of the underside when they’re this small. As they grow I will get more photos, but it will probably take some time.
