This species is characterized by its fan-shaped fruiting body, which can range in color from orange to reddish-brown. The fruiting body is often wavy or lobed, and may be finely fuzzy on the cap surface. This is a very common and easily to see fungus. It often covers large areas of trees and it bright orange to brownish orange. Which, most times of the year contrasts the overall colors of the forest. It is commonly found growing on dead or dying trees, and with its striking coloration and unique shape, it is fairly easy to identify. It is truly a standout species when found fruiting in large sheets of individual fruits on a fallen log like the one shown in the images below. It is especially bright after it rains, and when it is fresh.
