Port-channel with mixed media types?

Is it possible to form a port-channel with mixed media types (as long as speed and duplex settings are the same)?

We have a port-channel consisting of two 10G copper links. I'd like to extend it with two more 10G links but SFPs this time (via 40G-QSFP-SR4-INT breakout). Will that work?

Thank you.

As long as the speed and duplex are the same, I believe the port(s) should join the LAG. The only hardware limitation I am aware of with LAGs is if you are operating the existing LAG on a 10Gx24-DM module.

If using the 10Gx24 module, port group members can only exclusively consist of 10Gx24 ports.

(This is for the MLX/Netiron platform)
