Description.--Fruiting bodies: 8-15 cm across, running together so the entire mass is 9-15 cm long; 2-3 mm thick; resupinate, forming irregular round to oval patches with a fringed margin, color variable from a dull flesh color to purplish to bright fluorescent orange, especially at the margins.
Description.--Fruiting bodies: Resupinate with free edges curling up from the large, spreading, crustlike mass; upper surface of free edge white to pallid, densely wooly.
Hyphae of resupinate patch 2.5-6 [micro]m diam, thin--to thick-walled (wall up to 0.6 [micro]m thick), conspicuously clamped, smooth, of two types: 1) contents staining weakly in cotton blue, composing the cortical areas of rhizomorphs and all of the resupinate patches; and 2) contents staining strongly in cotton blue, limited to medullary portions of rhizomorphs.
Flowers resupinate, small, more or less showy, 1.6-1.9 cm tall, sepals greenish cream, petals cream, lip cream with orange and yellow stripes in the throat, column white, spur cream.
