It was under oaks.

Yeah I haven’t got that book yet (BENA). Working on it.
While this shroom is older and much bigger, it is still solid, quite tough.

That’s what I’ve been thinking, too.
Unfortunately, the fb is old and misshapen, but I see some reticulation at top of stipe. The habitat for this species is not limited to oaks in “industrial parks”; it could be just a coincidence.
Since you’ve handled the mushroom, see if you can match it to the description in BENA (if you have the book). Thanks!

maybe

Observation 243202: Alessioporus rubriflavus J.L. Frank, A.R. Bessette & A.E. Bessette

It came out of a similar grassy ornamental tree area in an industrial park — I have to find out if they’re oaks.

… and enter your name and collection site in the field. I think all your obsies come from Umstead.

Yeah, I agree, I’m still dragging through

Do you recognize this as something you may have seen/collected before? The cap texture looks a bit familiar to me.
