Albatrellus ovinus

Common name: Sheep polypore
Spore Print: White
Habitat: On the ground, in the forest, abundant in the mountains
Edibility: Edible when well cooked
Comments: These have a very distinct smell to them, kind of like soap! They don't have gills under the cap but rather very small pores. The flesh is usually very tough and rubbery. A friend of mine cooked some in a frying pan with onions and pepper and the taste was so strong he couldn't eat them and threw them out!
