This species can last for ages as dried specimens. In current conditions being very dry and cold it has even maintained some of the distinctive colour in its stem (stipe). You will often see the stipe is crooked with this species and the cap will at times grow around grass and sticks! The fungus is hard even when fresh and is a Polypore with a stipe, most polypores are brackets, you can see the pores on the under surface of the cap. Note though the white on these pores is a mould of some kind. Even though, when fresh that pore surface will be white. If you see a fresh one scratch that surface to see the distinctive red resulting from the damage.
Having images of both the top of the cap and the underside with the stipe made this easy to ID - thank you.
