This is a very confusing specimen as the gills are light colored and attached and some are notched. The only reference that I could find, besides Dr. Methven's identification at the time of collection, was Michael Kuo's website: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/gymnopilus_fulvosquamulosus.html. However, close examination again by Dr. Methven in 2015(see annotation above) combined with the 2015 DNA analysis confirmed that this specimen is Gymnopilus fulvosquamulosus.
