Thanks all, but I am pretty sure that it isn't Pycnoporus sanguineus, I have looked at a lot of images on the net and the texture just isn't the same. I suppose I am just going to settle for "Pretty Red Fungus" and have done with it. :-)

if it had relativ big Red pores, it could also be a cinnabar polypore ("pycnoporus" species?) good luck
