The flesh of their fruit bodies varies from soft (as in the case of the dryad's saddle illustrated) to very tough. Most members of this family have their hymenium (fertile layer) in vertical pores on the underside of the caps, but some of them have gills (e.g. Panus) or gill-like structures (from Wiki). From the research collection of B. B. Kauouse with his signature on the front board. Also included is an offprint entitled “Mycological Notes for 1920.” from the Bulletin of the Torrey Botanical Club vol. 49, pp. 163-173 (1922). This offprint, in original wrappers, is laid in at the front.
