Sessile or shelving. Upper surface pink to red, paler at the margins, spongy texture. 2-6 inches broad. Underside whitish, wrinkled poroid. White spore print.
83-84% Phlebia leptosperma, a lot of Bjerkandera adusta, Phanerochaete allantospora, Terana caerulea, Flavidon flavus, other Phlebia and Byssomerulius species.
is the closest match? I have a mac pc and my laptop is in need of repair so I am
unable to check. Unfortunately no one writes phylogenetic tree software and spore measurement software for mac.
No close ITS matches. Maybe it needs its own genus in the Phanerochaetaceae or Irpicaceae?
No evidence there is anything wrong with this name.
