Coral-pink Merulius

Phlebia incarnata

Description:

Alright, correct me if I'm wrong. The closest I can find is Phlebia incarnata--most pictures show them more light pink, but sometimes they seem to be a bit more red. I don't know if these being wet from rain is bringing out their color, or because they are fairly young.

Habitat:

Mixed forest, Ozark Highlands, 45°F/5°C. Found on a ridge and trail high above town. Growing on unknown wood rot in undisturbed leaf litter.

ID looks good to me! They are brighter in color when fresh. https://www.mushroomexpert.com/phlebia_i...
