A second fruiting of a medium sized leathery polypore with a distinct lateral stipe at base of a small standing dead tree. Caps fan shaped, dark purplish brown, surface is hard to describe but closest is velvety with irregular patchy colour and raised ridges. Largest cap is 8 cm diam. x 8 cm height with a scalloped margin becoming lobed in older fruiting body. Thickness varies from 1mm at rim, 4mm in centre and 7mm close to stipe. Stipe is dark brown velvety (even darker than the cap) with pores on the upper portion adjacent to the caps pored surface. Stipe on largest fruiting body = 2 cm length and is 7 mm thick. Stipe is attached to dead wood by slightly expanded basal pad. Pored surface on older fruiting body is distinctly beige (not cream) with 5-6 pores/mm. Close to Polyporus dictyopus or P. melanopus. Remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest. Adjacent trees of a similar size are whiteywood and kohekohe.

Polypore with a central stipe, cap brown with a small depression in centre and fibrous surface. Largest fruiting body about 3.5 cm diam. x 3 cm height . Pore surface yellowy-cream with large hexagonal pores. On very rotten fallen branch on ground in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
Polypore with a central stipe, cap dark brown, lighter at the edge with a fibrous surface. 2.5-3 cm diam. x 2-3 cm height with small depression in centre. Pore surface decurrent, yellowy-cream with large hexagonal pores. Stipe tan-brown, fibrous, 3-4 mm. Cap 2-3 mm thick.

Polyporus is a genus of fungi in the Polyporaceae family. It is a genus used for the production of single cell proteins, sources of mixed protein extracted from pure or mixed cultures of algae, yeasts, fungi or bacteria (grown on agricultural wastes) used as a substitute for protein-rich foods, in human and animal feeds.
