Gills are not anastomosizing if I not err

I would also plead for Tricholomopsis.

I seriously doubt

Phylloporus as the genus here…

Something about it is very ‘off’ – the cap surface looks wrong, the gills aren’t decurrent enough, not really sure, but the gestalt doesn’t say Phylloporus to me. To boot, it appears to be on wood.

I would first look at the spores (like Johannes suggested), but my guess is that this is a white-spored thing like Tricholomopsis. One last-ditch guess might be Neopaxillus.

Could it be a Hygrophorus?
I have seen something similar on a Japanese site (but with a smoother cap). They call it Hygrophorus calophyllus, but it isn’t..
