It was on a hardwood log in a mostly tulip poplar and maple bottomland forest. I have never seen L. huroniensis but will keep an eye out for it.
-Make sure to check which living trees surround that rotted log. If the specimen is growing on rotting hardwood, it is most likely Laetiporus sulphureus. If you think it is growing on on rotting conifer wood, however, it could be the more toxic Laetiporus huroniensis
comment Butch. This is neither of the species you mentioned. It is a chicken-of-the-woods (Laetiporus sp.). Although it is a pale one, I think it is likely Laetiporus sulfureus with some age on it. Both species of Laetiporus are edible, and we dined happily on this one.
best wishes to you.
They grow in clumps on wood. Easily confused with Chantelles which are edible. Refer to a guide to distinguish the differences.
