Surface of pileus featured irregular shaped crater like divots. Pileus was velvet-like to the touch and cork-like when pressed. Dark orange-brown liquid on surface of pileus. No gills on bottom of pileus, however, there were off-white teeth-like structures. Stipe was 3cm in length and .5 cm in width. Stipe was central but tapered downward in much the same way as some polypores. Stipe was dark brown in color and featured teeth like structures that were off-white in color and decurrent.
