Stalked terrestrial polypores under red pine (2 needle) plantation, some hemlock, spruce and maple interspersed. Cap up to 8 cm., yellow where protected becoming dark red where exposed/with age—bruising orange with handling. Flesh firm—orange or turning so instantly when cut. White tubes. Whitish angular pores —yellowing slightly, appearing to be lilac tinged in one area. Mild odor and taste. KOH on cap and flesh dark red becoming red brown.
Arora’s stalked polypore key points to Albatrellus as the likely genus but none of his species descriptions fit. A. subrubescens has the orange staining cap, violet tinges and association with 2 needle pine but its flesh color is white while the flesh of this obs is/becomes bright orange. According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albatrellus there are 19 species in Albatrellus some of which have flesh that is " white or becoming brightly colored."
