Hi Dan,
I did not see the cap on the other 2 views. I emailed you descriptions for both species along with a reference. Its fairly easy to tell them apart.

if they have a cap like 36470 yhen they have to be Xylobolus subpileatus. I will try to find you some literature or a reference.

36470 is shot at a different angle to show the side of the mushroom. All photos are of a single colony on a single log.

I have a side view photo of the exact fruit bodies in the other photos; I’ll post it tomorrow. 36470 is of fruit bodies on the side of the log, where as the other photos are of fruit bodies on the end of the log. I chose to post 36470 because the other photo was not as crisp, but you can see it tomorrow. It looks the same as 36470.

If you are applying two names to the same collection, then one name is misapplied, or the two names are synonymous.
