Recognized by sight: Lentinellus is characterized by serrate (sawtooth) gill edges and amyloid spores. Sometimes even the hyphae are amyloid. This is probably Lentinellus ursinus, but Ron Petersen has recently revised the species, and I don;t have the reference.

Also Creps with have brown spores, and Lentinellus has white spores (is that true, I seem to remember that). Yes, the gills there are serrate, whatta ya know. Are there more of these in the east, I’ve only seen one species of these here in CA.
