man, it really didn’t seem like phaeolus schweinitzii to me. I have found dyers polypore many many times (many times in the last weeks even) and no part of me thought of that id when handling this specimen. I can’t exactly explain why but I really don’t think this was p. schweinitzii……I have never heard of Onnia tomentosus before though, many images online of that do look like this specimen…

Tough call

Either Phaeolus schweinitzii or Onnia tomentosus.
