Birch Maze Gill Mushroom
Dec. 2, 2008 - Morley, Town of Canton, NY

This is a gilled polypore. It is not limited to Birch as the name might imply and grows on a number of deciduous woods and sometimes on conifers. Often seen with a green tint from algae growing on it. Fruiting bodies grow in late fall - early winter.
