I don’t think this one is right, but I don’t recognize it.

Odd one.

N. ponderosus usually grow off fallen logs or stumps. I have found them fruit ing from the ground either amongst a pile of rotting wood or attached to a root below. They usually keep low, not exposing the stipe at all. Another tell-tale sign is that the stipe is tapered/narrowed at the base and is VERY hard/dense. The last one I came accross I had to use my filet/fish knife, my picking knife wouldn’t cut it. Nice ob.
