Strong shiitake smell. Smooth and dry striped planar/broadly convex caps. Close, free gills look a bit like ripped paper, with mini-gills near the margin. Soft flesh with nearly hollow stems. No annulus. Some has a slightly bulbous stem base. Caps are 3"-5" in diameter for larger one.
Growing on rotten logs that were almost decomposed to dirt at this point. Growing singly, but there were quite a few on each log. Dark woods with only smattering of sunlight.
