Growing on rotting wood at the base of a ridge in a dense mixed hardwood/coniferous forest in NW Georgia (Gordon County), US. April 10, 2018.

Pileus: some specimens have very faint (almost nonexistent) concentric rings of cream, orange/yellow, and tan. Firm, leathery texture.

Pores: Cream with some cinnamon/brown areas. 1-3 circular to angular pores per mm. Pores have a “3D” visual effect when rotated.

Odor: Sickeningly sweet! I could smell the bagged specimens I collected for my entire hike and on the way home.

Any guidance towards an ID is much appreciated! I’m not confident with my current Trametes suaveolens ID. Does it even occur within this range?
