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…

Looks more like Paxillus

I think it look more like Paxillus than like Panus.
