There is a story that goes a long with this. I was walking along, just doing my mushroom hunting thing, and suddenly I herd a very loud cracking sound. I turned to noticed this very long branch falling down that was covered in this little polypore. These guys obviously wanted to get noticed. They covered the whole tree from top to bottom. The area consisted a pines and hardwoods in a cleared area There seemed to be a lot of both hard woods and conifers that dead in the area. The fungi are soft spongy and contain a lot of water. They stain brown upon handling or bruise brown. Spore print is white.

These are very soft like Cheese. If you squeeze them they drip water that has a taste that is hard to describe like banana peels leaves your mouth feeling funny. They also bruise brown
