It has been so dry recently. It must have been a fun to discover.

But this looked less brown/tan than the ones we have seen (and eaten). More orange. Last photo has my watch for scale.

Need more data, Penny.

Size? Thickness of fronds? Laetiporus does not grow on ground that I am aware of. Have you considered Grifola frondosa?
