It was growing on an old wild cherry tree. I was thinking it was possiably Bondarzewia berkeleyi but the top did look more orange than usual for the young ones but still my best guess. It was about 7 inches across. A few other club members thought it was just a young white pored laetiporous. It was very very hard and firm. I tasted it and not bitter but that did not help much since the young Bondarzewia are not bitter. So what left without going back, or using a scope. We I thought did it out and look for that sclerotium that Bondarzewia is supposed to have, but nothing. Did not supprise me though I tried digging up 5 or 6 of them before that I knew for shure because they come back in the same spot and never found one. Prehaps I did not dig deep enough just had a stick or prehaps it does not have one. Not shure but if it did it wood make a cool photo.
