is indeed needed to differentiate the two species.
they look clustered to me.
Hesler and Murrill consider gill attachment an important feature…
not to mention, the veil is beyond huge.

Not orange, slender, seldom clustered. It is the more common species in the Northeast. I also do not consider gill attachment a critical identification feature with these two species.

i’d like to hear…

your arguments against junonius.

there a plenty of Gymnopilus species that look similar.
you are “calling it that” and not proving it.
the gill attachment is critical when comparing junonius and luteus.
you also have no micro to back up your id.

of the gill attachment. I am pretty sure of the ID though.
