Olive tones

I think the olive tone in the base area is just from a leaf stuck in there, heh. Added a better photo. Thanks for the info though! I’ll look for more definite abietina.

stipe base

I see oak leafs and no indication in your obs of it being under a conifer. My bad. If oaks are close enough to drop leaf litter, they are close enough for a mycohorrizal relationship.

The base of the stipe seems to have some olive tones in it. R. abietina also has a particular branching pattern that is very similar to this species. They are known to be yellow at times, but just like Sparassis sp. I have seen various pale Ramaria sp. turn a darker orange color with age.

I was only suggesting a possibility.

Not under a conifer and really was more orange than yellow… what suggests abietina about it?
