MO voting system is flawed and for this unique idiosyncrasy, professional mycologists would reject it as a serious mycofloristic tool. This is a pity, since MO database data handling part is perfect and beats all the herbarium management systems I have been working with. I am also afraid that the MO system “identification” (that I would call naming) will become a nomenclatural standard among the young mycologists. Adolf
BTW, I have not seen any Clavariadelphus that would have pores.

I agree

with the Ganoderma or Onnia or some polypore, ascomycota seems unlikely. But it is early in the season…,

I forgot to mention that those two sporocarps were growing on the side of a hiking trail, on exposed soil. They were also quite minute, around one inch tall.
