The very bottom of the stipe looks to be missing, should come to a point and have yellow mycelium…

How can you tell the base is broken off? …It appeared to be intact to me.

Cap is a little pale but everything else fits well for innixus

So I was thinking

Fused fruit bodies…. KOH reaction good…No reticulation or bruising….Yellow coloring inside the stipe….pores a match….cracking on the cap surface… This has got to be innixus. But Noah is going to say something like it doesnt have yellow basal mycelium or whatnot.
I couldnt wait to see what he named it.

Stipe’s not right for B. auriporus is it?

It looks like a Xerocomoid somewhere near what is called subtomentosus.

like faded B. auriporus, but the KOH reaction seems too intense, and maybe not enough pink tones in the cap and stipe.
