Extract from Wikipedia article: Pycnoporus sanguineus is a white rot saprobic fungus. It was discovered on Guana Island (part of the Virgin Islands) but occurs throughout the tropics, usually growing on dead hardwoods. It grows in the form of a thin dry conk with a lateral attachment to its substrate, is bright orange on all surfaces with concentric zonation, and the pores on the underside are minute. It is inedible due to its tough texture.
Chinese: 血紅密孔菌, Quechua: Yunka k’allampa.
Fruitbodies of the blood-red bracket (Pycnoporus sanguineus) erupt from decaying wood in a stellar display of bright reds, orange and yellow. They will only thrive in warm, damp locations and were first discovered on the Virgin Islands. Their brilliant caps can range in texture and consistency from cork-like to leathery. The red pigment produced by this species is made into a globally-used dye.
