Larix decidua mainly but I suppose it could also grow on Larix kaempfferi. But it just grows on very old and rather rotten stumps not on living trees and freshly cut logs.

and we have some Larix decidua here in places higher than 800m, for example, in Gerês that is the mountains nearer from my house, is that the Larch you are refering? So beautiful cones… I think I never noticed any one.

it’s the complete opposite of that ;)

Osteina derives from Latin os, bone … and it is hard and dry as a bone indeed.
And bitterish.
But it seems to be confined to larch exclusively so no wonder you do not know it.

It looks delicious
