Recognized by sight: You can definitely see white “bloom” from tomentum on a few photos. The canina group really requires a good look at the veins and rhizines to be positive of id, but I think membranacea is a good guess given the overall look and habitat. Most mycologists on the CA/OR/WA coast will only ever see this species (and neopolydactyla in a different group) thanks to the habitat! :)
