This species is too small to do a bi-lateral or cap and gill photo with any degree of accuracy that can not be obtained from the in situ photo. There is another reference document, "Fungi if Japan" that also photo documents this species very well on page 538. Close examination by Dr. Methven (see annotation above) combined with the 2015 DNA analysis confirmed that this specimen is Dacryopinax spathularia.
