A Pycnoporus fungus

Orange Fungus with Dry Pine Needles 2028

Here’s a fungus in the genus Pycnoporus that had incorporated some dry pine needles into itself. Like the last few photographs, this one comes from an April 27th field trip to Bastrop State Park led by botanist Bill Carr. Thanks to mycologist David P. Lewis for identifying the genus of the fungus. (I couldn’t give him enough information to distinguish between the two species in Texas.)
