Toothed Polypore?

Recommended Posts

Found this in a surburb growing up on a post oak where a tree limb had been cut.(some species of oak im not positive of the id). We had rain about 3 days ago ,and it has been around 40-55 degrees since (normal Louisiana fluxuations, lucky us!). Very velvety cap similar looking to turkey tail, but the pore surface appears to be toothed. Making a spore print now to help out. Anyone familiar with this species? 

Thanks!

I think this is Cerrena unicolor. Some photos --like the second one down-- show pore-surface with elongated somewhat maze-like pores. Other photos show tooth-like pores. This matches the progression of stages for C. unicolor pores. Trichaptum species are similar, except I think a maze-like pore surface is never seen at any stage in Trichaptum. Also, when Trichaptum forms shelves of cap-like structures, they tend to form individual "caps" as opposed to continuous shelves of fused projections. http://www.mushroomexpert.com/cerrena_unicolor.html  The only thing that doesn't fit descriptions of C. unicolor are the yellow undersides.
