That’s what I did,

and as a result I saw just hyphae. I’ll try again. Thanks, Gerhard.

You have to make a cut from the smooth side of the fungus.

I will not exclude S. amplum. It just looks different from the finds that I make in Central Europe. Never found it in the Mediterranean area though mainly because I do look after different fungi there.

Thanks for your comments.
To Gerhard:
Yes, I mean the former Auriculariopsis ampla with the name Schizophyllum amplum. It was the most likely I found. I have the dried specimen but I don’t know who to make a section to observe the spores. Can you give some hints on that? In former attempts I was able to see hyphae (I will upload a photo with it), but no fertile part (spores, basidia,etc.). On the other hand, the non fertile part has the characteristic hairs of the more common S.commune.
I also saw some photos of Campylomyces heimii in the internet. This one seems to be different, mostly because of the impressive folds in the hymenium and its development is more like a crust and not cup like.

Ahora mismo no se me ocurre qué puede ser.
Sin microscopia será complicado llegar a algo fiable.

Un Saludo

I suppose you mean the former Auriculariopsis ampla with the name Schizophyllum amplum? If I am right then I would say this is not this species.
Just a wild guess. I found something similar in Italy – Campylomyces heimii. But this is REALLY JUST A WILD GUESS.

have you any better proposal? I saw the description of the species in Mycobank and it seems to fit, at least the macro. Gracias.
