This is the first Artist's Conk I have ever encountered and what a wonderful specimen! These mushrooms are sporous with a brown top and white bottom. It you take a fine point object you can trace an image into the bottom of the mushroom and it was stay there. The spores are on top of this mushroom so they can float away in the air.
