Color is typical for young

P.schweinitzii (photos 5 and 6 from the top)—usually spongy, watery and yellow at the margin. Both margin of cap and pore surface bruise brown. The pores are yellowish when the specimen is very young and fresh but more typically olive yellow. I’ve seen them with stems and as brackets but always on conifers. Also KOH on cap is black.

There are several people on google calling Laetiporus tangy, none for Phaeolus…
Seems like a weird growth habit for P. schweinitzii…
Same for color…

But the pronounced brownness and hairiness look like such a bad match for Laetiporus that I can believe it’s not that. Any other big Phaeolus characteristics it has?
