Hmmm…I see Royoporus (Polyporus) badius a lot out here, often large fruitings but always single mushrooms, never in clusters. And in summer, not early spring. Just doesn’t look right to me but maybe it’s a very young one.

This one was a puzzler, seen at a spring Wisc Mycol Soc foray today. Initially I thought Hohenbouhelia as it looks (to me) just like it from above…shoe horn look, was told that it was on rotten wood, the cream color with darker brown center of top of the cap all said that was it. But, when I turned it over…the gills were missing. So…a puzzler to me!
