Very nice. The male is beautiful. I haven't gotten as lucky yet.

Agreed, there is a similarity. But the edges of the cap seem sharper on the previous find, and these seem more rounded off. Also the clusters seem structured a little different and there is more exposure underneath where the gills are. I'll continue to research what I can and hopefully someone can help out with a suggestion.

The bands on females tend to be more grey while the banding on males tends to be more bold and white. I'm gonna have to guess this one is male, lol!

Unfortunately this is the only photo. I'll be sure to take your advice and take the necessary photos for ID next time.

Elm Oyster is the closest match I could found by appearance. I appreciate your help.
