Hen of the woods relative?

Recommended Posts

Found in woods on top of bluff by Mississippi River in Illinois. Smells very good, not like melons but similar to lions Maine. I think it's some lesser known subspecies of hen of the woods (if such a thing exists). Any help appreciated.

Not "hen" but "chicken of the wood", from Laetiporus family. Looks young enough to eat. It gets chalky and tough when is getting older.

I think this may be one of the white-pored species of Laetiporus. (Photos of undersides appear to show a lack of pigmentation.) Here in PA there have been some recent reports of Laetiporus (seemingly early in the year). In the past, the earliest I have seen Laetiporus around here was ~May 20.
