I agree. Bad identification on my part several years ago. I am going to check my field guides for the spot where I went wrong. Not much ambiguity on the web! Thanks for your help!

These look like young immature persicinus similar to my own find in observation 243540 . I wasn’t sure of Herbert’s ID initially since I had never found them so young before. Upon returning to this exact location this year I was able to confirm it was indeed Laetiporus persicinus ; observation 285846 . I agree with Jared that Onnia associates with conifers, usually pine in my experience and bruises dark brown/black as opposed to red/salmon brown in persicinus.

Definitely associated with deciduous trees

Definitely NOT at high elevation!

Onnia tomentosa..

is strongly associated with conifer usually in higher elevations. I don’t see any evidence of conifer in your photo. The leaves look diciduous.

I have seen L. perscinius in Florida
