This species is recognised by its fruit bodies crowded together, touching. They start off orange-brown and ripen to pale yellow before releasing spores. They live on the rotting remnants of trees.

    On the day I posted these images I found a small colony on rotting Sycamore logs in my garden, my first finding there.
