Phlebia radiata is a member of the Meruliaceae family. It is commonly known as wrinkled crust. P. radiata is an orange to pink crust fungus that spreads itself across the dead wood of hardwoods and conifers across North America. It has a wrinkled surface in which the wrinkles radiate outward from a central location. It does not develop pores, and it does not develop a cap structure but sometimes forms a folded-over edge. It is known to cause white rot on the organisms it grows on.
