P magnus grows in clusters…but I have not found any were where it says that P cervinus does or does not grow in clusters but from what I have observed it does not seen to prefer to….hmmm
The thing to do is to have the Cystidia checked for horns…I guess you could send me some dried gills if you wanted to…

Johann, does cervinus not grow in clusters? I have not studied the genus as much as I would like to.

I have seen cervinus grow close to each other, but never in clusters like these. Usually a few on one side of a log and a couple more on the other side.

Did you check for horned cystidia ?

This could be Pluteus magnus perhaps, it appears to be growing in a cluster
