Yes, a Laetiporus species.
Incredible colour Mac. Excellent info thanks TMM.
Hi MacChristiansen! These are such beautiful colours! This might be Laetiporus sulphureus (Chicken of the woods/Sulphur shelf), though I'm not up to date with the new insights (and thus the new taxa within Laetiporus) given by molecular studies. What I meant to say is that Laetiporus sulphureus is actually a cluster of different species. In America the species is now devided into 4 morphologically look extremely alike. They cannot 'mate' with eachother, which makes them biologically distinct. Here is the source for more information: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/laetiporus...
