Green Spalted lumber?

After a road trip to pick up a few items, found a 9' 2×4 in red oak. Ynder that board was a 2-3/4×2-3/4 chunk on "white wood". It had a few lines in the rough sawn surface.

The board on the top. Ever see Green spalting? There is some figure in the board, but it isn't Oak. The boards below it are Red Oak. I Think…

Have now planed all four sides square to each other, and one face does not have any green lines going on.

Strange board…

Now that I look at it again, I had some beechwood that turned green when it spalted. Very cool though.
looks like soft maple to me, my local woodcraft had a ton of soft maple recently that looked somewhat like that
