Again you assert strongly that it’s definitely not in Polyporaceae. Again you fail to provide any evidence to support that contention. The strongest argument you’ve ever given against Polyporaceae for any of these was that a specimen had a brownish cap upper surface, but that can’t fly as a basis for an “as if!” vote for Polyporaceae given the existence of brownish-capped upper-surfaced fungi in that family (e.g. Polyporus squamosus). Unless you’ve got something bigger in your quiver, you’ve gone out on a limb and sawn it off behind you with your latest crusade.
