The young pores

(I call them young because they are at the growing edge of the cap, and thus the most recently formed) in the first image are pure white.

I don’t think the cap color is very informative for Trametes versicolor- it can be really pale, or reddish-brown or yellowish brown, or nearly black, or blue, or…

Not sure about Trametes versicolor

Even the very young fruits have brown pores. I observed this log last year and noticed the same thing – none of them have normal, white undersides. Also the colors on the top seem a bit muted.
