Trichaptum biforme

“Violet Toothed Polypore” Spring-Autumn fruting. White rotter on hardwoods. Often grows in thin fan-shaped tiers on dead logs and tree limbs. Saprotrophic on decaying hardwood. Top of polypore is grayish-white and slightly fuzzy with purple margin. When fresh, the pore surface is a surprising lavender color, particularly closest to the margin and the pores have broken to look like teeth.
