About Polyporus Officinalis

Fomitopsis Officinalis is a species of fungus that often grows on coniferous trees and old or rotten trees, destroying their bark and trunk wood. There are two types of Agarikon: female and male.

It grows as a large mass, consisting of layers of stratum, unequal in size, cohesive, columnar, sometimes conical, and sometimes cylindrical. Irregular layers of this fungus are such that their outer surface looks like a groove. The color of the outer layers of the female Agarikon is often white, sometimes orange and sometimes brown. The upper parts of them are usually gray. The outer layers of male Agarikon are darker and sometimes blacker than female one.

The underside of the Fomitopsis Officinalis is spongy, soft, and white. The color of the inside of it is white. The outside of the Agarikon is relatively thick and stiff, but the inside is soft and almost loose. The outer part of the male Fomitopsis Officinalis is stiffer than the female one.
