Basidiomas in this fungus are annual, single or group, with a stem in the center. The hats of Albatrellus syneporovy have a rounded shape. It reaches 6 cm in diameter. The hats can be either single or multiple. In the latter case, the leg has a branched shape. You can recognize this mushroom by the gray or bluish shade of the cap at a young age. Over time, they either turn pale and become pale gray with a brown tint or red-orange. As a result of drying, the non-zonal cap becomes very rough, in places with small scales. The color of the edge does not differ from the entire surface of the cap. They are found in nature both rounded and pointed, and below they are fertile.
Fabric thickness up to 1cm. With a lack of moisture, it quickly hardens. Color ranges from cream to brown. The length of the tubes is 3 mm (no more); in drought they acquire an expressive red-orange hue. Due to the surface of the hymenophore, which has a gray-blue and blue shades, this mushroom got its name – 'bluepore'. When dried, I acquire a dark gray or bright orange reddish color. The pores are mostly angular, their thin edges are serrated, the density of placement is 2-3 by 1 mm.
Has a monomytic hyphal system. The tissues of generative hyphae have thin walls, simple septa, which are highly branched and even swollen (diameter from 3.5 to 15 microns). The hyphae of the tubules are similar, with a diameter of 2.7 to 7 microns. Basidia have a buloid shape. They are 4-spore, with a simple septum at the base.
Disputes are different in shape: elliptical, spherical, smooth, hyaline. They have thickened walls and are non-amyloid.
You can find them in places with good moisture, growing on the soil surface.
The geographical location of Albatrellus sineporovoy in the Far East (Japan) and North America.
The mushroom is conditionally edible, however, its edibility is not fully understood.
