Pine straw digesters?

Greetings from Houston, Texas.  Does anyone know of a fungus (preferably an 
edible mushroom, but I'll use anything) that can digest pine needles and 
tolerate the heat of the Texas Gulf Coast?  

I have a bumper crop of pine straw this year, and the 6' mound on my compost 
heap from last year has barely begun to decay!  

Many thanks.
