Spore measurements will help toward a species determination. Could you post the print for your other recent observation of the same species that is now being called “Gymnopilus”?

I’m only taking spore prints, no dried material. Flying back to FL tomorrow, and USPSing the 80380244034 prints I took this week to myself.

Either the distribution needs to be updated or a new species described. I really hope Mykes is holding on to material!

Thanks Alan,

I missed the white spores at the top of the stem. Rocky, according to M. Kuo X.cauticinalis is common in the west and occasionally found in the northeast.

Is wrong for X. tenuipes. The stipe appears to be to wiry and cylindrical for that species as well. The rest of the morphology seems promising for Xeromphalina.
