The fruit body is a fleshy, bracket-like growth that grows from dead wood or live trees. It is roughly semi-circular when viewed from above and with a diameter up to around 15 centimetres, with a thickness of one to a few centimetres. The upper surface may be ridged and roughened (a little stubbly) and is pinkish-red to brown. The underside is a shade of red.
On the underside there are what look like numerous pores. Look closely and you see that the underside is made up of separate, but abutting tubes, not the uniform tissue of a polypore. In effect this a bit like a community of separate tube-like fruit bodies.
Found in forests, woodlands and suburbia.
