Decomposing the deadwood of conifers across North America, Gloeophyllum Sepiarium is fairly easily recognized. When fresh and very young its cap is more or less orange, but as it matures brown colors replace the orange from the center outwards. The underside of this polypore features gills--which is a bit odd, since polypores have pores rather than gills.
