|This maze polypore grows from a variety of hardwoods, usually large,
fallen branches. Summer and fall; old, dried examples can be found
year round. The pore surface, when fresh and white, bruises pinkish.
(A similar maze polypore, Daedalea quercina, does not bruise.)
|Older collections of Daedaleopsis confragosa can exhibit a gill-like pore surface
and brown to reddish-brown coloration. Examination and comparison of a cross
section of the cap will help separate from Lenzites and Gloeophyllum species.
