Two confused species

I cannot agree with Plicatura nivea. It has a more bumpy hymenium with rather blunt veins:

It is often confused with Byssomerulius corium (or Meruliopsis corium if you prefer). It’s a species with a fine, maze-like hymenium that soon turns ochraceous. Old and dry ones become completely smooth and tough, like paper.
The last page also shows another typical character, the folded margin of the very thin fruitbodies.

Did anyone check the spores on this one?

Amyloid? 4-5 × 0,5-1 microns? or
non-amyloid? 5-7 × 2,5-3,5 microns?
