    I found these on a dead branch....the cap being almost a half-dollar size with the stems leading to dark bases. The underside were small pored....the actual cap very tuff.......not sure if that's because of drying or if that was the actual texture/feel of these.
    They were found in a mixed forest on the Missouri River bluffs in NE Kansas just this last week (July).
    If this isn't Polyporus varius any other ideas?
