now that I look closely, I see how 212306 has the more typical coloring of H. thelephorus, and while hefty, could certainly still be gelatinous. the spines also are decurrent down the eccentric stipe (I thought it might be central at first, hence Hydnum).

the missing link?

Observation 212307

I am not accustomed to seeing it with a pinkish hymenium against the white background flesh, but that’d be my guess for both 212307 and here.

… and a permission to make collections.

Just a thought, after finding the three species at the same day in the same area…

i don’t think so

Observation 212306 is fleshier, yellower, with very conspicuous spines. even accounting for age, sun bleaching, or some other environmental variants, I can’t reconcile those being the same fungus.

Same species maybe …

this looks like a Cotylidia with some pink hyperparasite on it, or a cotylidioid thing which has a bumpy pink hymenium, or neither… Also not entirely convinced those aren’t pores.
