this was also taken back in february, i have some macro shots of it from different angles, and those show that the cap is paper-thin.

Could be either, Cory.

Need to measure thickness of flesh. If less than 2mm thick, then T. versicolor as you suggest. If over 2mm thick, then may be T. hirsuta, which is often larger and has small hairs on the cap. Usually T. hirsuta is less virbrantly colored as well.

There are a host of other Trametes to consider as well. But to begin with, need to know how thick the flesh is.
