No specimen available

This polypore was found on an Oak tree about 18ft up. It was growing out of a damaged section of bark that exposed the interior of the tree trunk. Squirrels have been feeding on it as is evident by the scratchings and teeth marks on the surface. The night before I took these photos there was an amber colored liquid dripping out of many places on the bottom. There were wood roaches and palmetto bugs feeding off this fluid and maybe the mushroom as well. The spore print of this is brown but after 24 hours not much of a print, (this may be due to us being in drought conditions). Spongy around the perimeter, much more fibrous and dense near the stipe and mid-section.
