whitish pore surface

Irene, thank you again. I was somehow misled by a picture of B. fumosa in Bernicchia, Polyporaceae s.l. (2005), p611, which shows (probably a quite old) specimen, which is much darker in overall. So I didn’t consider this option seriously. But now I found that whitish pore surface, as in my pictures, is also an acceptable character, particularly for young specimens. The rest (text of description of observable characters) fits well to my observation.
