Probably Laetiporus sulphureus. The top photo shows specimens that are too large for Schizophyllum and they are not tomentose.

The top pic is Schizophyllum commune, the bottom two may well be Laetiporus.

but clearer photos are required to say for certain. if we can’t tell lamellate from poroid from smooth hymenia, your camera is moving way too much at too slow a shutter speed.


1. flash + higher shutter speed

2. tripod

3. both
