I separated this observation into three. Your name proposal, Trichaptum laricinum, applies to MO # 136620 correct? Any ideas on the large yellow fungus?

Thanks, Darv

I wondered about that. Should I destroy this observation and do three more—one for each of the fungi?

Since only one name can be applied to an observation, only one fungus in the photos. You can reuse the same photo for each species. Lichens are fungi too.
