Observation 45053: Laetiporus Murrill

There were two of these absolutely splendid fungi growing on the same moss covered log. It was late in the afternoon and the vivid bright yellow that I saw
was magic. The habit of the first specimen was not repeated in the second growth.
I found a similar looking specimen in my references, except that it was red/brown. (Podoscypha petalodes).
In the last image I have placed a small section of the fungi to show the underside of the fungi. Size: was as big as a dinner plate. I measured 12 inches across the widest face.

I have looked through the images associated with Laetiporus sp. and as I noted the second specimen on the log was not forming the same habit as the image posted.
Images already posted also differ in habit. So, will go with the nomination.

I’m not sufficiently familiar with them, particularly Bondarzewia, and if you found this in Oz there may be further possibilities I’m not aware of.


What do you favour.
