Common Names: White-pored chicken-of-the-woods
A bracket fungus, very similar to Laetiporus sulphureus (chicken-of-the-woods), except it grows on the ground and has a white pore surface. Fruiting body is up to 60 cm across; usually consisting of several to many caps in a rosette but very rarely consisting of a shelving array near the base of the tree. Orange/yellow bands on top, with a white (instead of yellow) pore surface underneath. Color fades as it gets older or exposed to more light. The flesh is thick, soft, and moist when young, but eventually becoming tough, and finally crumbling away.
It is typically found growing on the ground (from the roots of the tree) instead of on the tree itself. It tends to favor oak trees. Typically found in the summer and fall.
