Abstract:  Polyporus admirabilis Peck, a North American species, has recently been found in Norway. The species is described, and the differences between it and other, similar species are discussed. P. admirabilis resembles large specimens of P. varius, but spores are smaller and the microstructure of the pilear surface is different. The Norwegian finds derive from trunks of living Quercus petraea and Malus domestica.
