Dryad's Saddle

Interesting, understated mushroom.

  • Grows on trees.
  • Has a porous underside much like a bolette.
  • Usually found May to June.
  • Younger specimens are better than older.
From a differential point of view, Dryad's saddle can be confused with other polypores, however its distinctive top, porous underside and "meatiness" (polypores have a woody texture) make it pretty distinctive.
