Bright orange, funnel-shaped fungus with shallow, reticulate false gills (?) or pores. Cap is furry in texture. Base began oozing brownish liquid when broken. Fungus had bruised to a rust to violet hue after transport in a paper bag (around 30 minutes). Spore print appears to be an copper to green rust color.

Found growing in soil under leaf litter at the base of a ridge near the edge of a dense mixed hardwood forest.
