Sarcoporia longitubulata looks like this observation 284897. Additionally, I’ve found S. longitubulata only on fallen dead (oak) logs, whereas descriptions of O. populinus indicate that they grow on living trees, frequently maple. Here is a link to the paper describing S. longitubulata with more of the macroscopic characters https://www.researchgate.net/...

looks like a lot of things

I have seen called Oxyporus populinus. how does one tell the two apart in the field?
