Fruiting body.

Mike, I didnt cut this as I had seen it on previous occasions and felt it was common , (but attractive). I will try and do a scope today and see what comes up. The undeside did not stain when handled.

quickly stain dark brown when touched? Do you have a photo sliced through the fruit body?

I concede now that its probably not “strawberries and cream” however the second photograph did look like it did have teeth and that is what I find most interesting is that there is the presence of the both the colored water droplets and the semi-teeth and pores, which I have seen in the specimens of Abortiporus biennis on M.O. though I have searched search all over for photos of Onnia and Bondarzewia specimens with water droplets and come up empty handed. Though of the later two I would also concur more likely Onnia.

Can you get spores under a scope?

It would be easy to rule out Bondarzewia. Onnia looks promising.
