Certainly it’s grossly similar. Pretty broad distribution!
Darv now has the fruit body and can perhaps confirm.

well obviously…

I was hoping that one of you folks would know this one by sight.
Dramatic, no?

I have it, but I am not looking forward to scoping it…chop chop (chop, chop, chop, etc.).
Plus, I am waiting on some glass cover slips…those plastic ones make a hard job even harder!

Would you like it, Darv? ;) I can give it to Jim Wheeler for you today…

These things can’t be identified macroscopically the first time you see them. You have to make a slide or two and see the microcharacters.

Looks like folds on the hymenium. In the East we have two common ones Phlebia tremellosa & P. radiata. This one is a lot denser.
