Pycnoporellus alboluteus

Fruitbodies consist of cushion-shaped masses of pores on thin, orange flesh. Fruitbodies are intense orange at first but may fade to yellowish white. Pores are large, angular, at irregular levels, elongate, becoming toothed, and up to 3 mm across.  This unusualbracket fungus fruits on wood in the spring in the western mountains.  It is found in eastern Canada but is not common.
