| Polyporus varius
|The species epithet "varius" fits this polypore very well, as it can exhibit
many different cap variations. The collection shown here represents the
form with a radially streaked cap and reddish brown colors. Usually
found during summer and fall. Grows from branches and sticks near
gullies and other areas that remain moist during dry weather.
