Laetiporus conifericola…

is a conifer-dweller. It has a somewhat questionable reputation as an edible. I haven’t seen it here in PA very often. Distinguishing trait is wood type.

L. cincinnatus is reported as an oak-lover. I have found it on oak, usually early in the season. Distinguishing trait is color of pore surface.

Usually, Leatiporus quercinus grows on the oak. Other sort (Laetiporus cincinnatus) is unknown me for the moment.

I missed this question in all the Amanita fun I was having yesterday.

I think it is a Conifer log. There are certainly a lot of Loblolly pines around in this forest.

I’d be fascinated to learn how to differentiate these taxon from one another.

Just for the record, I ate a small part of this specimen and it was great! :)

The dead wood is Quercus either of the conifer?
