says L. elegans’ pores are radially elongated.

From MycoBank

PORE SURFACE very variable, partly poroid, round to angular, 1-2 per mm, partly sinuous-daedaloid and radially split, up to 2 mm wide, partly purely lamellate with straight to sinuous lameleae, 4-7 per cm measured tangentially. This variation may occur in a single specimen. Even in poroid specimens some parts the hymenophore will usually have a few lamellae or sinuous pores. Pores or lamellae up to 6 mm deep.

-Ryvarden, L.; Johansen, I. 1980, A preliminary polypore flora of East Africa: 399

This is clearly uniformly poroid and the pores are almost exclusively circular in shape.
