This just in: the spore print is light brown,

with strong hues of what I’d describe as either goldenish or fresh-rust color – the color that iron adds to a picture when it starts oxidizing. Artomyces has white spores. Also, upon close examination, it doesn’t have that cup-like structure surrounded by points that Artomyces is supposed to have, so I sunk the Artomyces suggestion down to the basement.
Also see observation 178318 for identical species.

i’ll take it…

I don’t have means to see the spores. The stump is from what used to be white pine, if I remember correctly. I do have the specimen saved for brave souls who wants to go down and dirty on this one.
