''Daedaleopsis confragosa'', commonly known as the thin walled maze polypore or the blushing bracket, is a species of polypore fungus in the family Polyporaceae. A plant pathogen, it causes a white rot of injured hardwoods, especially willows. The fruit bodies are semicircular and tough, have a concentrically zoned brownish upper surface, and measure up to 20 cm in diameter. The whitish underside turns gray-brown as the fruit body ages, but bruises pink or red. It is found all year and is common.. more
