Found on a decaying stump in mature mixed coniferous forest. Cap is velvety as well as the stipe. Young gills are white and decurrent. The entire group is approximately 5 inches across.
I’m thinking it’s Panus, but not sure.

was published in 1992 according to Index Fungorum. I just added the citation to the page for the name. I’ve heard that it is well supported based by additional evidence including it being saprotrophic rather than mycorrhizal as the real Paxillus species are.
Thanks for the ID. It is a beautiful thing yes. This species will make number 95 on my ten acres.
The hairy stipe is quite obvious. Typically, Panus conchatus has a nice blue/lilac color when young, it typically turns brown later…
I think it look more like Paxillus than like Panus.
