Home Fungi Shelf-like to hoof-like & usually on wood Pored or somewhat maze-like on underside [bracket polypores] Perenniporia ochroleuca

Perenniporia ochroleuca

 

The fruit body is a polypore that grows out from wood. In vertical cross-section it is roughly triangular, with a horizontal lower side, sloping upper side and the third side is vertical and flush against the wood. The upper surface is smooth, lacking even the velvety hairiness of many polypores. It may be creamy or yellowish- to orange-brown and usually is concentrically banding in different shades and it is also likely that there is concentric and radial ridging. The creamy lower surface is composed of  numerous pores (2-4 per millimetre). The fruit body may extend to 5 or more centimetres out from the wood and may be up to 2 centimetres thick at the wood surface. It has a firm texture.

 

It is found on a variety of dead wood (e.g. fallen branches or trunks, fence posts, power poles) and occurs also on live trees. It has been reported from a wide variety of habitats. 

 

The first published description appeared in 1845, based on material collected in Western Australia, and now it is known from all continents.

 

Macroscopically, this is a fairly nondescript species. However, while some other species may match Perenniporia ochroleuca in some way, the combination of features listed above should make it hard to mistake anything else in our region for this species.
