I also tend to Bjerkandera. It was my first idea. But you need better photos nevertheless.

inclined to B. fumosa tough. The pore surtface is near the B. adusta (and it was not much tough) that I saw this year, only a little darker. The lack of substrate could justify the “thin” and B. fumosa could have a rudimentary stem. (if it was growing on a base root of a tree it would be possible).

Phaeolus is rather soft and spongy.

I went there

because the owner told me there were lots of agaricus growing at that time. I just remember the cork plantation and some oaks, near that particular place, but there is always a pine somewhere here, I can’t say for sure that there wasn’t any.

Phaeolus, Onnia aren’t they all a little tough and the Phaelous undersurface is it velvety (not in ones that I saw)? These were soft. Is there any soft polyporus? The closer that I saw was a P. melanotus, but the undersurface colour doesn’t match.

I have to return there and try to find it again (Autumn).

Then it cannot be Bjerkandera.

With a stipe it would fit for Phaeolus. But they are with pines and larches. Ok, there are others too, e.g. Onnia but this genus also is on conifers.

On the ground

but near deciduous trees in a poultry farm (could be over hidden wood or roots). The pore surface was velvety and dark brown, round cap context thin, they had a stem like a boletus but hollow, could be old.

Around pine or larch stumps or on roots of those trees?

Or on deciduous wood or near the ground growing over grass?
If on or beside conifers it could be Phaeolus schweinitzii.
If on or near decidous wood I would say Bjerkandera adusta or Bjerkandera fumosa. Unfortunately the light on the pic is not natural.
