Identity of the material

Hoelen (Poria; Chinese: Fu Ling) refers to a mushroom cultivated in China on the roots of Chinese red pine trees (e.g., Pinus massoniana and Pinus tabuliformis); it also grows wild on these pines and other conifers, as well as on several hardwoods (Bau Yunshen, accessed August 2006). The common name hoelen comes from the original botanical name - Pachyma hoelen - given by the Dutch botanist Georg Eberhard Rumphius in 1741; it is a term that has been used by the Japanese (their medicine influenced by the Dutch) and followed up by the Taiwanese (adopting the Kampo Medicine system of Japan).
