Thank you, nice to know what they are. They grow on our Black Locust tree and seem to come back healthier each year. Thanks again.

Its a little unusual for this species to be found in the midwest...usually similar mushrooms within the genus but closely related are what you find around the great lakes. ( Gamoderma oregonense and allies) Its highly sought after to use to make medicinal tea. Whoever is cutting it off the tree is either selling it or making their own dried preparation for tea.
