That’s what I meant

The location is not so far, and the color of the scales is palid orenge to me. So, if both G. flocosus or T. floccosus and G. Kauffmanii can be of palid orange, at this point, they could be the same fungi on this image. What I wish to know is, if there is more differences between them that we can assess from images.

Those are “kauffmanii” scales, and once you compensate for the heavy red channel in the image, I think it would be more of a “kauffmanii” color as well.

G. kauffmanii was described from WA (not to far from this location) and IS a different fungus from G. floccosus; as is G. bonarii but they (incorrectly in my mind) have been synonymised with G. floccosus and transferred into Turbinellus (which is the right genus)

I’m not going to discuss the name
