Still in doubt

Still too mush color for B.adusta too. And it doesn’t display “stacked” appearance typical for B.adusta (and sometimes zonation). There are lots of lesser known polypores out there, most seldomly make guide books. Please prove me wrong…

As far as I know, B.fumosa usually doesn’t display this array of colors, especially underneath (4th photo) – it’s supposed to be smoky-gray to whitish or brownish when old. I might be wrong…
