I believe this is laetiporus persicinus
Macadellic posted a topic in Identifying MushroomsHello all I have recently struck up an interest in mushroom foraging after consuming lions mane, chicken of the woods, hen of the woods, and trumpet mushrooms! I do understand that typical chicken of the woods is a nice orange color but upon doing some research (I acknowledge I am novice, no shame there) have discovered a species of laetiporus that is brown. I have read mixed reviews whether it is edible or not though. I would greatly appreciate some input about what is shown in the images here. I believe it is a species of chicken of the woods called laetiporus persicinus. I did nibble a small piece and its taste and texture are just like the chicken of the woods I bought and consumed before. Only difference is that this is a dark brown color. It is very firm and spongy to the touch. No significant color change here. It just slightly browned where it was disconnected. I've also included the tree I found it on. Not sure what kind but know that's an important factor.
