Recognized by sight: I’ve observed fresh Phlebia tremellosa dry up and deepen color to look just like this. They’re surprisingly colorful sometimes. Phlebia coccineofulva does not seem to have any cap surface whatsoever.

P. coccineofulva is also more colorful, often with bright yellow margins grading into orange, then red and with distinct purplish tones toward the center

Phlebia coccineofulva isn’t effused-reflexed like this. This is just a particular red and very old P. tremellosa.

Hi, I’m not sure I understand? This specimen shows all the signs of being Phlebia tremellosa, with its effused-reflexed character and wrinkly undersurface. Here is an example of similar P. tremellosa I found at Lake Macbride Nov. 8: https://i.imgur.com/Lwicq7k.jpg

I don’t see any resemblance to other P. coccineofulva finds, such as this one in Illinois http://mushroomobserver.org/252846?q=BIzm, by anything other than color. Sorry to bother you about an observation you made three years ago, but I also noticed that this is being used for media on P. cocciniofulva’s EOL page and it would be unfortunate to have an image on there that was not correct.

I’d like to at least hear another opinion or two before I’m convinced this is this is correctly ID’ed as P. coccineofulva.

That was fresh snow, not “caps.”
