    This is a much smaller clump than yesterdays.
    I made the ID mainly based on the purplish showing up amid the whites.
    It's on a dead tree trunk, likely pine.
    Kindly confirm please. Thank you.

    Hi David - In general that is a reasonable ID, as it does look to be Chondrostereum. However there are other purplish members of the stereum-types of crusts. Chondrostereum purpureum I find on hardwoods, though I gather it can be found on conifers, though I have not seen that personally.
