has the LARGE irregular pores typical for P. fulgens.

F. pinicola, a grey mold on the F. pinicola, and the orange growth next to and overlapping the F. pinicola.

is what it looks like to my eyes as well, the f. pinicola getting grown over by laetiporus with a mold growing on the pores of the F. pinicola. or not?
Great find!

I see two separate species here. Is the orange growth part too thick for Hypomyces aurantius?

Do you think the orange is just F. pinicola?
