    Would this happen to be a Striped Lentinus (Lentinus tigrinus)? If not, what, please?

    I think the Lentinus family are gilled?
    This looks more like it's in the Polyporus family...possibly Polyporus varius or P.badius.

    I was wrong again. I checked out the polyphores and it seems to closely resemble a polyphore squamosis, Dryad's saddle. How's that sound?

    That would definately make sence. The texture to the cap as well as the black 'foot' would fit that perfectly.

    this seems to be Polyporus varius (formerly Polyporus badius, more or less) like C. Wick suggested.

    I have seen it twice with the black foot? But as with my first guesses....I was thinking STRICTLY with the black foot as it being the P. badius.
    All the P.badius in my area have perfectly smooth caps though.....

    Polyporus tuberaster also has the black base and has a similar cap to the one in this picture.
