Description

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 velvety brown on top and dark black brown with pores on the under surface 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 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.

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.
