Polyporus radicatus 

Polyporus radicatus Schwein. (1832)

Polyporus radicatus grows from the ground and is probably attached to the dead roots of deciduous hardwood trees. The cap is yellowish-brown to red-brown, and velvety. The pores are white, shallow and somewhat decurrent in running partway down the similarly colored central stem. They do not change color with handling. The stipe that is underground is blackish and tapers down toward its attachment point. Polyporus radiactus is in the Polyporaceae family of the Polyporales order.
