In PNWKC, circular fruitbody indicates S. ocraceoflavum, but the description for it say “cup up to 1cm”, which seems to small. I couldn’t see a single spore under the scope. Or any other notable feature.

… confused me the most. I’ve seen T. versicolor, but it was always shelflike as in descriptions. And I’ve never id’d a Stereum before. This made me go to the same place today and I think I found Stereum there, among other things growing on trees.

Darvin and Britney, thank you for the correction!

shows a porous surface to my eye. This example just seems ‘young’. I agree with Trametes versicolor as well.
