Maybe I’m just not familiar with the gills of N. lepideus during an early formative stage. Mature material that I have examined here in PA had deeper gills with serrate edges. for example, obs 164868.

I have also collected what I believe to be N. lepideus in the Rocky Mountains. Younger specimens, but still with more substantial gills obs 142767.

So I wonder if there’s another Neolepideus species that’s been going under the name lepideus?

and thought about proposing Neolentinus. But the gills are so shallow and appear to lack ragged edges. I did a little searching and found this…
Currently, Neolentinus cyathiformis

Oh yeah!

N. lepideus is a much better fit. I forgot there was a large, scaly eastern species Neolentinus.
