Stereum complicatum

Common Name: Orange Crust

Synonyms:

Substrate: Wood - Usually large sticks

Location: Hardwood Forests

Spore Color: White

Comments: 

If you are walking along a trail and see a sticked covered in something orange, then you are most likely looking at Stereum complicatum or the Orange Crust Fungus. It often grows flat along the surface of the stick, with the edges sometimes sticking up slightly forming small petals. Both the orange surface, as well as the other side should be smooth, without pores, making it one of the members of the crust fungi.
