However, there is no mention of the genus Cerioporus in the Ginns paper you have linked, so I’m not sure how it applies here. It appears to be a broad overview only, based on outdated references. It doesn’t qualify as evidence, even if your name is in the acknowledgements.

For the nomeclature of our British Columbia collections and postings of polypores we follow Ginns, J. 2017. Polypores of British Columbia (Fungi: Basidiomycota).
Ministry of Forests, Lands, and NR Operations, Technical Report 104. ISBN
978-0-7726-7053-3 (Print version) & ISBN 978-0-7726-7054-0 (Digital version)

That should be self-evident

A disservice is done to MO and its members by not providing evidence to support the reintroduction of Polyporus squamosus. MO improves due to meaningful and helpful dialogue.
