These were found on what appeared to be a decomposing hardwood branch. Stipes are lateral. No black feet. Two of the caps have partially fused at their margins. Caps are glabrous, “zoned” in terms of textural features, not color differences. There’s little evidence of radial wrinkling. Caps are tough but not woody. Context is white, with pale zoning evident. Context depth 2 mm. Tube depth 2 mm. Pores round and average 5/mm. KOH negative. Smell is not distinctive. Taste mild.

Loweomyces fractipes looks like an excellent match. This is the first I’ve heard of it.
