and on p. 573 under Ischnoderma, found "…while using the name I. benzoinum for the conifer-loving version with darker (browner) flesh and tubes. Here’s a similar photo, if not identical:

Notice the reddish coloration of what appears to be younger sporocarps.

Sounds likely.

Looks like a possibility, anyway. Certainly would be in this area.

But was unsure of species. It was dead 100 feet up, but green with needles and cones above. I am still bad with trees anyway, sadly….

Any ideas?

I have never seen E. tinctorum or anything like this.

I have a small piece of top surface and hymenium. Any quick tips for something to look for under the scope? I only have up to 400×.
