is a synonymous genus, and I was not referring to Phylloporus. Perhaps I was thinking of Meiorganum curtisii, but that is a totally different beast…

Perhaps the other genus you’re thinking of is Gyrodon.

Nice find, Paul

Isn’t there a similar-looking mushroom from another genus with boletinoid hymenophore? I cannot recall the name.
