Pegler provides two completely and unmistakably different images and accompanying descriptions for L. bertieri in The Genus Lentinus and The Agaric Flora of the Lesser Antilles. Presumably, one of them is the "real L. bertieri ad the other is a mistake. Every L. bertieri determination/proposal on MO is now suspect. I have no idea who/what else to consult for help on this genus, save for a few Thai authors…

you, sir,

I found a copy of “The Genus Lentinus: A World Monograph (Kew Bulletin Additional Series)” for about $23 with shipping… now I’ll be ID’ing my finds myself! :P

Thanks again,
