Albatrellus confluens
North America, Europe
Cap 7-18 cm diameter, stem 3-7 cm tall * 1-3 cm thick

From above, this pale orange polypore looks like an agaric or a hedgehog mushroom, but it has minute pores on the underside. The skin of the convex cap often cracks with age. It has a sturdy stem and very firm, mild to slightly bitter white flesh. Grows under conifers, mycorrhizal with conifers in a wide variety of ecosystems.

Similar species include Albatrellus ovinus which is more cream white and does stain yellow or greenish yellow, particularly on the pores.

If you plan to collect fungi to be eaten, misidentified mushrooms can make you sick or kill you. Never eat a mushroom that you are not 100% sure is edible. Use many resources, and be skeptical of your own conclusions. Please consider that many mushrooms take years of experience to identify reliably.
