does seem like a good possibility. Red staining pores is something good to look for with this genus (for future finds)

it looks to me

much more like Amauroderma than Microporus, but that’s just from the pileus surface. without the underside, it’s impossible to say anything with certainty.

no pic of pores/gills – sorry

unfornately not…. I was getting tired and didn’t do as good a job as I should have documenting this specimen… surface was shiny/hard (not wet)… accurate width of pileus as have photo w/tapemeasure…

sorry, this is all I have for this one… GPS is accurate within a couple meters as had 5+ satellite readings…
