that F. tenuiculus isn’t this pigmented. something nearby perhaps…

which is why I didn’t propose Favolaschia. :)

would more likely have clearer distinction between pileus and stipe, or no stipe at all, as opposed to the fluted or “infundibuliform” shape seen here and in many Favolus/Polyporus spp., complete with decurrent pores. nor have I ever come across Favolaschia with a basal disc. microcharacters would have to be some degree of mycenoid as well.

Have you considered Favolus?

or maybe even Favolashia?
