your vote reflects that.
i was referring to your comment, “and that feature (striate margin) is NOT shown in Olunas lovely illustration of G. picreus…and IF it was there, you can be sure that she would have shown it.”

lovely observation!!

I am not disagreeing…

or are you referring to picreus also having a striate margin?

it is said to have a “striate margin when wet.”

but there is no way to check further. I didn’t save it, nor scope it at the time.

I can see the slightly striate margin, though, and the only wood present was conifer wood…and that feature (striate margin) is NOT shown in Olunas lovely illustration of G. picreus…and IF it was there, you can be sure that she would have shown it.

this is probably G. bellulus due to the slightly striate margin and growth on conifer wood.
the spores should measure 3.5-5.5 × 2.6-3.5.

thanks Christine!

Gymnopilus was one of the genera that I was considering. Good to have your feedback.
