Pileus convex-plane, dimidiate, laterally extended, reviving the second season, 4-6 X 5-10 X 0.5-1 em.; surface azonate, rugulose, pruinose to tomentose, at length glabrous, the color changing from light-orange to cinnabar-red, often fading with age; margin acute, except in large plants, faintly zonate; context floccose, elastic, zonate, reddish; tubes nearly equaling the context, firm, miniatous within, the mouths small, 2-3 to a mm., regular, coccineous, dissepiments rather thin, entire; spores 6-8 X 2-3 p..
Reported by Harkness as occurring on oak in California.

I asked Joan Knapp the difference between T. cinnabarina and T. sanguinea and she said:

I’d lean towards Trametes cinnabarina (although T. sanguinea is tempting because the brackets look thin). However, the brackets are hemispherical and look as if they are attached to the wood along the ‘flat’ side; they are also basically flat. T. sanguinea would look more curved into a funnel-like shape – like a Stereum ostrea bracket – and often show a distinct very short stipe attachment.
