really not very thick, 0.3-0.5 cm, of a very soft consistency, almost gelatinous. I returned today to pick up more specimens and all were (?) and deformed.

Realmente no es muy grueso, 0.3 – 0.5 cm. y de consistencia muy suave, casi gelatinosa. Volvi hoy a tomar otros especimenes y todos estaban marchitos y deformes.

What you are mistaking for thickness is the undulation of the pileus itself. If eduardo were to grace us with a section, no part of the pileus, save for that which is closest to the stipe, would be appreciably thicker than any other. If eduardo were to describe the consistency, he would tell us it was much more resilient than a bolete as well.

MushroomObserver needs a silhouetted search light feature, so I can shine an outline of a bolete onto a clouded sky and have Roy Halling swoop in anytime he’s needed.

We (mostly) agree again, Danny.

Half-way between stipe and rim, context of cap gets thick. Not a Polyporus trait.

Tubes thin on rim where pileus is visible. Where thicker, pileus not visible.

no bolete

is this acutely umbilicate/centrally depressed, none have such thin, wavy margins in age, and none have white pores (not tubes) so shallow that the underside of the pileus is visible through their openings. Polyporus, on the other hand, frequently has all of those characters.

Your comment is noted, Danny.

Boletus has pores. This has pores. Some Boletus grow on wood. This grows on wood.

The cap context near the center is much thicker than the outside, unlike many Polypores.

Did you notice hymenium shot Eduardo provided? Looks like pure white tubes. Some Boletus have pure white tubes.

I did not say this was either Boletus or Boletellus. I doubt it is, too. I did say it may be becoming something similar.

this is in no way

anything remotely like Boletus or Boletellus.

Spore print?

This has extreme variation in pore size, Eduardo. The thicker cap and various-sized pores suggest to me this is becoming something similar to Boletus or Boletellus.

Great observation!
