Hello Tom!

I have to admit, more of this specimen ended up in burritos than in our herbarium. Delicious is a mild word for it. I think “addictive” would be fitting. I’ve got the spot marked on my GPS unit, though…

With white pores this is definitely Laetiporus cincinnatus, the most delicious of the five or six Laetiporus species in North AAmerica

Thanks. I’m pretty sure you’re right, actually. Need more coffee!

Check out this page:
With white pores and rosette-like growth, I’d consider this one instead.
