Recognized by sight: Apologies for being confused as to the Macrofungi in Missouri- I am confident that this is indeed P. ramous and not P. gilvus as previously thought. P. gilvus is thinner, generally a plural shelved fruiter and occurs most commonly in Europe. Hopeful species seeking can sometimes lead to misidentification- rather than seek a species specifically, I now objectively key to Genus using keys from scratch(as I always should have). Again, I apologize for being careless on this original observation.

I found a polypore on Osage orange awhile back … nice to know what it is now.
