Cracked Cap Polypore (Phellinus robiniae)
The cracked cap polypore is one of those woody shelf mushrooms often seen on the sides of old trees and has a special affinity for black locust trees, but can be found on certain oaks and acacia trees as well. Found across most of the eastern half of North America, and parts of the Southwest and Pacific Northwest. This particular one was found on the side of a black locust tree (Robinia pseudoacacia) in Hidalgo County in South Texas.
