I agree, the colours of the cap and stipe, and smooth, shiny texture of the cap look very close to Chroogomphus, where as most Phylloporus to me resemble Xerocomus in colours and felty textured, often cracking cap. But I guess they are all closely related, and I wonder whether the generic distinction for Phylloporus is substantiated by much more than morphology..

Though I notice that the hymenium seems to be bruising a green colour, a change not seen in Chroogomphus.

Gorgeous pictures of an odd mushroom!

Seems to fit well with Smith & Thiers picture of Phylloporus boletinoides, but to me, it reminds more of a poroid Chroogomphus than a Phylloporus (lamellate genus close to Xerocomus).

nifty mushroom

an angular, decurrent pore surface that has stretched because of the expansion of the cap.

and utterly indecisive on whether to go with gills or pores. it’s like there’s exactly 50% of each.
