Just a few pictures I took walking the trail around the West Shore Community College pond. We have made it to full summer, and the color of note is green. For sure.
Even if you make it dramatic, it's still green.
How about a red belt to go with that? Redbelt polypore (I'm pretty sure, although I'm open to correction on this), Fomitopsis pinacola. It's a little thinner than I would expect, and it must be young since the color is all redish. Older ones are thick, like a hoof, and are brown with just a red belt at the edge before the white strip.
But the underside is easily identified as a polypore... no gills, just a more or less smooth surface covered with tiny pores.
Maybe if it works hard it can be a black belt.
