looks like evolution in action to me…

Interesting — looks like an intermediate form between gills and pores.

After the link in the “Used References” section of the observation I added “just a guess.” Upon further review, I can see that it’s not a very good one. P. pusillus is not necessarily all white (see link above), but doesn’t seem to develop a stipe, just a lateral attachment. Hymenophore is pretty drastically different as well, as you’ve indicated. Looks absolutely nothing like any Trogia I’ve seen.

pusillus, also known as Dictyopanus pusillus, is white and has a complete poroid hymenophore. I found it in Australia and it is very tiny… this could be a Trogia or something like that, even a Panellus but not pusillus in my eyes …
