that confirms my suspicions:

there’s more detail on hairs further in. The key gets us only as far as those with no naked-eye hairs (C. indica, C. venezuelae, C. instititia, C. colensoi and C. colensoiopsis) before inquiring about microcharacters, though C. indica, C. instititia (as well as C. sinensis) are apparently restricted to Asia…

Alan, were both these and Observation 105495 100% sessile? If so, I think they could be young (and therefore not yet veined/folded) C. venezuelae. Christian’s images of that sp. show young specimens similar to yours.

all Cookeina spp. are some degree of hairy, if only minutely, all the way on up to C. tricholoma with its porcupine quills. I’m not positive though…

Not all Cookeina species are hairy

Cookeina species are hairy and I don’t see hairs on your pictures. No idea for a name
