Is this Tyromyces chioneus?


Recommended Posts

I think this is a species of Neofavolus. The fairly large polygonal pores and consistently fan-shaped caps suggest this. Most field guides document Neofavolus alveolaris, which is usually orange-capped, at least at maturity. Recent research suggests the white ones may be a different species. I believe the name suggested is N. americanus. The ones seen here look to be very fresh/young. So, it may be that they will develop more pigment as they mature.
