Looking at this, what I said does not sound right, I didn’t mean to suggest you were wrong. And there does seem to be plenty of B. flaviporus up there (although you don’t find a lot of them, just one here and there). I meant to say the leaves look dry, that the weather looks dry up there, so the viscid might not be obvious. Last year I was confused by B. subtomentosus, which when young seems to have very yellow pores, although as young the pores are small and tight. But the viscid cap really gives these away. Last year I had one that was wet, and it was hard to pose because it would keep slipping across the paper and not hold still.
The cap was very viscid once I moistened it. It was dry in this photo because it hasn’t rained much in the last 2 weeks. All the features matched according to the description in Mushrooms Demystified.
Just the bright yellow of the pores isn’t really enough, although B. flaviporus also has relatively wide pores like this one does. But the key feature is the viscid cap, was the cap here viscid? It looks pretty dry…
