[Taxacom] Does anybody know this fungus?

I think Laetiporus is a good genus for this fungus, but don't think it is L.
suplhureus. It looks very much like Laetiporus cincinnatus, a recently
described species with salmon colours and growth from the main roots of
trees (not from stem or bark). But it has been found up to now only in the
USA and only on hardwood.

best regards,

Andreas Gminder

My first thought is /Laetiporus (Polyporus) sulphureus/, what is often 
called "chicken-of-the-woods" here. The genus is widespread, but I don't 
know if it's found in Brazil.
