difficult to tell the Lentinellus species in this group apart (ursinus, castoreus, vulpinum and auricula/pilatii), when they are young in particular.

My impression on aging specimen, auricula stays pale quite a while but becomes yellowish brown on drying, vulpinum soon turns more brownish, develops a ribbed cap and often rusty spots, the others become darker reddish brown. But don’t take that for granted – I can be mistaken about them..

(if some collections of L. cochleatus look similar to this one, they are probably misidentified :-)

L. auricula does not show up on any fungi lists from North America that I am aware of. If this is that species, revisiting the site and collecting it would be great. Some collections of L. cochleatus look similar.
