Recognized by sight: Clearly a Trametes in the tradition of Trametes trogii, but definitely not that. I am unfamiliar with South American Trametes species.

The observation you’ve referenced is the most convincing shot of T. trogii yet, but only as a step in the right direction. I’m with Tom on this not being an exact match. The first major difference that stands out to me is the absence of that shaggy cap surface, and in other shots of T. trogii, the overall shape is visibly different, ie: effused-reflexed (Thanks for the vocab, Tom!) with somewhat convex shelves; lack of hymenium at the outermost margin leaving a thin, pore-less, slightly incurved lip.

That’s what that is?? I have been finding a weird underdeveloped Polypore here, that I thought was Phellinus linteus, but after looking at some photos of T. trogii, I think that is much closer. I will make an observation…

Tom, I would love your opinion on this seemingly similar observation 29801.

Never seen a Trametes so thick.

Cap Surface

The labyrinthian cap surface has got to be a strong indication of one or another genera. I’m surprised this has gone unidentified for so long.
