found this growing on a downed connifer, along a creek. the reddish brown “dust” could be spores, or could be rotting wood.

Was this growing on a conifer trunk? On hardwood? What was the size? Could the reddish-brown underneath be a spore deposit? It looks similar to a very old Laetiporus, which more frequently (and much younger) is bright yellow or orange.
