Remarks (internal):A. heteromorpha is easily identified by its light colour, adpressed and numerous fruit bodies which are corky hard both when fresh and dry, and especially by its large, irregular pores. It was collected on open, well-illuminated sites, especially in lichen woodlands. The species tolerates dry periods and great variations in the substrate temperature. Most fruit bodies were found on tallstumps of spruce, cut by local people during winter for camp fires. They emerged characteristically abundant on all sides of the stumps.

Pores round, sinuous or split, large, 1-2 per mm or larger. Distinctly dimitic, generative hyphae with clamp connections, skeletal hyphae subsolid, refractive; spores ellipsoid-fusiform, arcuate to-wards apiculus, (9.4-)10-12(-14) x (4-)5-5.8 µm, IKI-, CB-.
