Who: Robin Lee Corley (rlcorley)

No specimen available

Under a tree, the tree had white bark. This is outside my office. I’ll take my tree book and update the tree. There were four mushrooms growing under this tree in July 2012. Three looked the same, this one was different. White with black, and shiny slimy stuff on the top. I didn’t touch the top, but it was shiny and looked slimy. The holes went all the way through the top part. I’m looking to dye wool with mushrooms and want to learn to identify the dyeing ones available in this area.
