I hope this conversation thread will help others who encounter this wonderful anomalous mushroom.

L. var.squamosus and f.secotioides might not be published synonyms but they are the same mushroom. Pelger spells it differently with a ul in it. page 45 & 48.
L. tigrinus var. squamulosus (published as Panus in 1968)

Thank you – that’s more than exhausting explanation, and solution to one of my most mysterious specimen. And it grew in the bottomland forest like it’s supposed to. The only part I’m missing at this point is whether var.squamosus and f.secotioides are synonyms.

Can anybody explain what happened to the gills? – that’s what thwarted my identification.
