No specimen available

This is an immature conk growing on a chunk of wood in Zone 09, photographed in September, October, and November 2009. It is not easily identifiable at this stage and I had planned to post this observation after getting more photos of the conk in spring. Then some @$$#0135 decided to come along and destroy Zone 09. I actually did attempt to find the log in the wreckage, in case the conk had somehow escaped unscathed, but was not even able to find the location where it had been more than very approximately.

So I’ll just post these here and it’ll probably remain an unsolved mystery.

the log was probably pine. There’s none of the red/orange colors or dark colors usually associated with F. pinicola though.
