some exceedingly smooth Auricularia. If anything, hymenial hairs a species-dependent characteristic, and even then sometimes best (or only) observed on young fruiting bodies. There nitty gritty of Auricularia hairstyles has been briefly hashed out elsewhere on MO: (http://mushroomobserver.org/54669). Questions/apparent contradictions are many. Answers are few.

Yes, one side of Auricularia usually has a velvety appearance, but Exidia is never fuzzy_.

are usually macroscopically noticeable on Auricularia, giving the abyhmenium a white/grey appearance

I haven’t noticed this on Exidia
