Basidiocarps: perennial, pileate, pilei solitary or imbricate, sessile or attached with a narrow base, rather small, applanate, dimidiate or ungulate (hoof shaped), up to 7cm wide and 5 cm deep, 0.3-2.5 cm thick, corky when fresh, but woody hard when dry. Upper surface: glabrous, at first cream-ochraceous, with age discoloured, often zonate with pale yellowish brown to pale purplish brown. Margin: thick, rounded, entire or slightly lobed, usually light coloured, narrowly sterile. Pore surface: white, cream, or ochraceous to discoloured, pale brownish in older specimens. Pores: circular, 2-4 per mm. dissepiments (partitions between pores) thick and entire. Context: 1-3 mm thick, upper layer as a distinct horny cuticle, white to ochraceous, weakly zonate; tube layers single or weakly stratified, 3-10mm thick, straw to wood coloured. Hyphal system: trimitic. Basidia: 30-40 x 10-15 μm, barrel shaped, four spored, with a basal clamp. Spores: 12-17 (-20) x 7-10(-11) μm, abundant, ellipsoid, truncate at the apex, hyaline to golden yellow, thick walled, smooth, weakly to usually strongly dextrinoid in Melzer’s reagent.
