Milk-white Toothed Polypore Irpex lacteus (Fries) Fries  

Description:

Beware look-alike species, some of which are not readily identifiable. This species may become gray/dirty white/tan in old age, but never dark brown. The fertile surface may become weathered, but probably doesn't break up into wide, broken-toothed projections. (J. & R. Solem, pers. comm.)

There are 181 records in the project database.
