but to my knowledge T. suaveolens is concolorous, azonate, does not develop radial striations, and primordia are always white

Though I’ve never found it

but are they supposed to smell sweet like anise?

most likely T. pubescens.

the smell is not correct for pubescens

after further research and looking at the specimen more closely I agree it has no hair and most of the experts say it has hair if it is to be the hirsuta… so you are correct Irene about it not being hirsuta…. but my problem with pubescens is that my research says NO smell but my mushrooms have a really nice sweet smell and you could say it is anise … which brings me to a possibility that it may be trametes suavealens …. can anyone verify that the pubescens has that smell? If so then I would be ok with calling it that….

for Trametes hirsuta. Trametes pubescens is a possibility, a close relative with a softer velvety surface.

Trametes hirsuta or also called Coriolus hirsutus

after doing further research I found what I believe is correct … Trametes hirsuta or also called Coriolus hirsutu, the pictures, descriptions, everything seems to fit … it does not look like trametes pubescens from various sites I looked at….
