Interesting mushroom on wood

Growing on strongly decomposed wood, nut sure what kind, lenght 3-4 inch, cap diameter 1 inch, cap color cream orange, gills like on the photo. Flesh very firm, smell and taste pleasantly sweet, flesh inside white, doesn't bruise.

I have no idea what it is.

Those look like immature Pleurotus to me. Usually they grow like shelves, but I have found specimens that look more like standard stem and cap mushrooms.

Happy mushrooming!

They do kinda look like Pleurotus eryngii of some kind, but they completely lack any "true" gills, so I am not sure.

When immature I often see mushrooms that have only vestigial gills. That's why my suspicion.

Happy mushrooming!

I asked the head of the local mycological asosication and I think he got it right:

Neolentinus schaefferi(= Lentinus cyathiformis), a brown rot fungus.

If no milk then it could be a Clitocycbe Species?

The name suggests some affinity with shiitake. Is it considered edible? It is probably cultivatable.

i was thinking some thing along the lines of Pleurotus too. The way the cap is short and not elongated reminds me of eryngii.

It has a pleasant, sweet taste at first, with a kinda sharp aftertaste after a minute.
The flesh of older specimens is pretty tough. It is considered non edible in the literature.
It is considered a pest fungus though that colonizes wooden structures.

Synonyms include:

Lentinus degener Kalchbr. in Fries 1874
Agaricus cyathiformis Schaeff. 1774
Lentinus cyathiformis (Schaeff.: Fries) Bres. ss. Bres. non Schaeff. 1900
Lentinus lentopodius Schulz. ex Kalchbr. in Fries
Lentinus schaefferi (Weinm.) Rauschert
Lentinus sitaneus Fries
Lentinus urnula (Fries) P. Hennings aqud Engler & Prantl
Lentinus variabilis Schulz in Quel. 1886
Neolentinus schaefferi (Weinm.) Redhead & Ginns
Panus cyathiformis (Schaeff.) Fries 1838
