  1. I think this is Punctularia strigosozonata. "Ecology: White rot saprobe on dead hardwoods. According to literature it prefers aspen (Populus such as P. tremuloides) in northern areas but found on other hardwoods to the south. Was recorded on poplar, oak, and hickory from Chicago area 1902, 1903"
