Could it be Hypomyces aurantius, which also fruits on Trametes?

I am not certain what it is, its not Syzygites megalocarpus. The strange thing is the underside of the pores turned pinkish colored. I pasted a second photo of the pink pores that were also attacked but I am not certain if the fungus on top is the same as the one underneath.

we usually find Syzygites megalocarpus on boletes, but KUO says it has been found on 65 other species. Cant tell from the close up pics.
