Postia stiptica looks like a better idea :-)

Thank You Irene for pointing out this error!

Somehow the incorrect name, Postia placenta, got attached to the pictures so I have removed it. I have found that the name actually given to this mushroom by the Italian mycologist in the field was Postia stiptica which is described as a white bracket mushroom with the common name, Bitter Bracket.

is pink, resupinate and grows on conifers, so this has to be something else
