Crepidotus all the way. Certainly not Tapinella panuoides.

What kind of Crepidotus is hard to say, mollis is the most common, but these in general need a bit of work. Check the shape of the spores and if rather broadly ellipsoid, to subglobose, it’s probably mollis. If not, we need to talk.

As far as Tapinella panuoides, the concept there is different – look here:


Crepidotus mollis?

Having seen Tapinella panuoides just today I am more inclined to think this is a somewhat washed out Crepidotus mollis.

Maybe Crepidotus?

The gills look at little regular for Tapinella, which are usually thicker gills that are wavy and intertwined near the attachment to the wood. Perhaps Crepidotus?

More likely Crepidotus
