Feeling soft and hairy at first the surface becomes coarser with age and darkens somewhat. GILLS/PORES: Gills are thick and have a maze-like appearance. Ochraceous orange in colour. FLESH: Rusty-brown with no distinct taste or smell. Thick and corky. SPORES: White, cylindric. HABITAT: Found mainly decomposing coniferous wood and more often than not park benches, tables and other such timber. This species causes intense brown rot. Take note though - this species can be found on deciduous wood. SEASON: Infrequent throughout the year but sporulating in autumn. EDIBILITY: Inedible.
