ID this Indiana Mushroom please!

Recommended Posts

First time mushroom hunter and I don't really have any resources available to me with the knowledge of mushrooms so I figured I'd join this forum and ask yall!  I found this today, 5/1/19 on a 3" diameter stick in the woods in Indiana.  Pretty bright orange and stuck out like a sore thumb in the green and brown backdrop of the woods.  

Any idea what it is?  Edible?  I know you generally stay away from bright colors in the wild but figured I'd ask :)

Thanks!

Nice pictures.....I am not an expert by any means but take a look at polyporus alveolaris, the hexagonal-pored polypore.....

Correct GJC. The new name for this common spring polypore is Neofavolus alveolaris... at least that was still the name last week :-)  when I snapped these photos.
