Recognized by sight: I like the stereum theory, but it is unusual if true. Check Stereum hirsutum (Willd.) Pers. (2144). Any more photos of the top?

Of “Mushroom: The Journal” is leaning towards Stereum as well.

“Yeah. Most Stereums are orange underneath. You’re looking at the bottom. That stuff sticking off the lower part of the log (in the picture’s orientation) is the caps.”

“The darker colors are because it’s old and other things are starting to grow on it or it’s just starting to dry up.”

I personally have no idea….

I found this growing with the first pictures as the top….

It was in a bunch of debris that appeared relatively undisturbed. I saw the bright orange surface crust through a pile of greenery.

There was very little of it that had grown upwards enough to even have an upper surface. It appeared like a crust, mostly.
