Sept. 14 – Observed, photographed, left to grow. Max cap about 1 inch across. In large hardwood log.
Sept. 16 – Rephotographed and collected. Mice and slugs had been eating at it. I decided to collect it even though it was not mature. Max cap about 2 inches across ( although part missing, just estimated). I saw no latex. It had no smell. I did not taste.
I took a small bit off the tip of the gill in the large cap and made a squash mount. Looked at it in water. I saw only 6-7 spore which seems to indicate that it is still very immature. The spore I saw were lemon shaped, but possibly immature. the spore seemed to be golden. I saw dark enclusions at the tip and some golden material.

Thanks for the ID, don’t think I would have figured it out. I searched on Mycoportal for species found in Texas and there are only 3 records of Neolentinum lepideus which this is not. It will take a few days to research the genus on the web and in the few texts I own.
