Comments: Some people consider Daedaleopsis tricolor (Bull.) Fr., Mycol. eur. (Erlanga) 3: 12 (1828) as a varieti of: Daedaleopsis confragosa var. tricolor or simply Daedaleopsis confrangosa. To my experience D. tricolor and D. confragosa differ significantly in habitus. Growing gregariously, fruitbody diameter up to 8 cm (3,2 inch), flesh hard. Pictures show dry and dead (?) fruitbodies.
