these appear to be considerably thinner and orange (as opposed to whitish) underneath, resembling a fungus I’ve met several times in the Neotropics but have never IDed to satisfaction (mostly due to never having a specimen available for study). I started suspecting it was R. microporus based on photographic likeness from Petersen and Læssøe’s Ecuador images, which I would link to but the server that hosts them is perpetually down. That notion has been tentatively confirmed by other mycologist from or with experience in the Neotropics, but it’s just a rumor without vouchered specimens.

I do not know enough of Rigidoporus (or indeed most poroid genera) to say whether or not 94261 belongs there. More information may be needed.

maybe similar to…
