Location: Colorado
Spore Print: White
Edibility: Inedible
Color: Brown

Often found in spring growing on rotting Gamble's Oak and other Deciduous trees. You can find it pretty much anywhere that has Ponderosa Pine and Oak along the foothills. I've also seen it in abundance on Siberian Elm stumps.

Rather small with pores rather than gills. Fuzzy cap. Fairly tough and woody. Sometimes in clusters, especially on Elm. It was recently moved from Polyporus to Lentinus.
