Observation 87364: Postia guttulata (Sacc.) Jülich
When: 2011-11-18
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This was growing on an old log in a mostly conifer habitat.
I unfortunately lost the specimen that I collected so all I have are the photos.
It had the consistency of a Sulfur Shelf although it had somewhat thinner, wide spoon-shaped, overlapping caps.
It seemed to bruise pinkish on all surfaces but rather slowly. The second photo shows that on the pore surface.
According to MycoBank Postia gluttulata can grow in an imbricate manner(like tiles on a roof), making that species a more likely possibility.
