Recognized by sight: The distinct orange tone seems more like Laetiporus than Bondarzewia. Also I’ve seen Laetiporus fruit like this in CA. It would be easy to tell the difference with a bit of scope work (Bondarzewia has warted amyloid spores. Laetiporus has smooth spores).

I think you are correct about this. I had not even thought of that possibility. I do not think I even saved that specimen. Glad I have seen Bondarzewia berkeleyi in its more recognizable form as well as two of the Laetiporus species.
