No specimen available

Given that specimen has “roots”, spore surface is tightly attached and that it was found alone and near decaying woods, it suggests that this speciment is a Polyporus radicatus (Schwein.) Fr. The important things for identification here are the combination of a ground growing polypore with dark, convoluted pseudorhiza and thin tightly attached tubes.
