I must be missing something. I do almost all my work with Postia (new name 
for Poria) placenta.  The fruiting bodies I've always seen are appressed and 
leathery in appearance.  Do people actually eat these things???  If so, 
maybe I've found a commercial application for my research that will please 
our administrators!  If you want some, I'll be happy to sell it to you!  |-)
