I guess…
Neolentinus lepideus has rare instances on hardwood, but dead or decaying hardwood, not live. (wiki)

I dont recall if the gills were serrated. It was raining and I shot and ran.

It was growing from a scar in a living hardwood.

The odd morphology is a result of the extremely dry weather we’ve been experiencing. H. ulmarius is described as being prone to cracking. Additionally, There were a bunch of “regular” H. ulmarius out.

All of the observations for Hypsizygus show smooth caps and stems.
