Fistulina is pink when young isn't it? Not that it looks particularly
Fistulina-like otherwise.....

Hi all,

Found this fruiting body on an old wound 4 metres up the trunk on Holm
Oak. I first thought Laetiporus sulphureus, but then noticed the guttation
droplets like you would normally find on Inonotus dryadeus. On that basis,
it doesn’t seem to fit the criteria for either. It’s out of reach so I
don’t have a cross section, before anyone asks. I couldn’t get a good view
of the upper side, but it looks as if there is some green algal growth,
like found on Rigidoporus ulmarius. However, I wouldn’t  associate the
shrimp pink flesh and guttation with R. ulmarius either.
Any ideas?

Jonathan
