Taxonomic Swap 65008 (Committed on 2019-11-15)

Type species of the genus Cerioporus, so if that genus is accepted, this species must be in it. Support for the genus is good. See https://doi.org/10.1615/IntJMedMushrooms.v18.i1.40, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0159495, and https://doi.org/10.1007/s11557-018-1416-3.

Although long-known under the name Polyporus squamosus the evidence seems to be quite strong that the species does not belong in Polyporus and should be recognised in Cerioporus.

Thank you so much for confirming the change . This was quite an amazing thing to see in the forest. There were several other smaller ones on the same tree. I love learning about new things in nature from Inaturalist and very smart people like you!
