Comments: 

Merulius refers to the "meruloid" pore surface on the underside of the mushroom. It is actually well developed ridges and folds that can sometimes resemble pores. The upper surface should be a rosy pink color. The pore surface should be white. 

This mushroom seems to have a relationship with Stereum ostrea. They almost always grow alongside one another.
