Recognized by sight: This is what the publication listed below calls this fungus. It is not necessarily accurate. What it is not, in my opinion, is Cyptotrama. I have collected it in Bolivia and Argentina.

I think Bryn has the right fungus

but possibly the wrong name, not unlike the Haasiella ID from the Argentinian bulletin. C. chrysopepla seems to be well documented online, with entries at Rogers Mushrooms and elsewhere. The gills are consistently described as distant, right down to the basionym, Lentinus chrysopeplus, and the cap color bright golden/lemon yellow, of which this is neither.

The mystery continues…

to get a list from admins of the observations with the most proposals and/or votes and aggregate them into a species list.

it may be a rather “stupid” idea…
but, we have a category everything else…so here goes…
what about a category for “highly disputed observations.”
might be interesting.
or, maybe a species list is a better way to handle this.
i just feel they go unrecognized a lot of the time.
