because there are no serated gills that I can see (serated = sawtooth edges). Lentinus/Lentinula/Lentinella all have serated gills. Leucopaxillus seems more possible because of the lack of serated gills, plus the funnel-shaped cap. Lentinus is mostly umbonate (like a broad umbrella shape). I’ve never seen Lentinus with a funnel-shaped cap (but I don’t live in GA, either).
