The first image is the top side of the fungi. The second image (which was very poor), was of the underside (where the fungi was attached to the deadwood).
The third image as you suggest is also of the underside of the fungi.Referring to the first image: The topside of the fungi under magnification show small pores, not obvious to the naked eye.
Hope this clears up the confusion.

the photograph you provided is of the abhymenial surface (opposite to where the spores and basidia are formed).

Added Image of underneath section of Dried specimen.
Undersige of Fungi

Danny, Fungi dried and will do some images of the underside today time permitting.
Thanks for your patience. It has been a busy period for me.

‘poroid’ indeed means having pores. a replacement photo of the underside would be great.

Reverse side.

My apologies regarding this image. It apparently moved during the shot. The surface is not smooth, and seems to have layers, especially near the outer edges.(like wet cement when poured if I can use this simile. Not sure what “Poroid” means??) I can take another photo if necessary. If Poroid refers to “pores” I can say the under-surface is smooth and without pores.

the hymenium is not clear from your second photo. was this smooth? poroid?
