Trametes cervina

is softer than e.g. T. versicolor or the like. But it is also rather elastic.

I might have to go back and look

at the fresh ones again. If I remember correctly, I thought there was some pinkish staining on the pore surface, which is still somewhat visible in the dried specimen I saved. It could be another color though. The pore surface almost breaks into teeth, especially near the back.

When I looked into a few initial names for it, T. cervina was as close as I came, but I was not convinced. I might have to take back my last post, because while I said it was more on the soft and fleshy side, Id place it more in line with a Trametes than a Merulius. Just softer than most.

Ok, no Trametes.

I see the finely fimbriate and seemingly soft margin in magnification. Merulius, now Phlebia, could be a good guess. But there is something that speaks against. I am not familiar with North American Merulius species though.

It was much more

on the soft and flesh side rather than corky and tough. It loses much of the tan color with age, drying almost to an off white.

or corky and tough?
It looks a bit like European Trametes cervina if tough.
