STOP Bad photos like this serve no purpose. They should never be on MO. They only make MO less useful. STOP this crap.

attached is the sclerotium which usually is immersed in the rotten fruitbody of the host, some Russula section Nigricantes. The sclerotium is a small round ball-like structure, hard and contains the other “fruitbody” in which the mushroom can survive during unfavorable season.
Such a thing does also possess Polyporus tuberaster.

You kill me rs :)

if a sclerotium is present or not?
C. cirrhata lacks sclerotium.
C. tuberosa has brown one.
C. cookei has yellow one.
C. racemosa is dendroid without sclerotium too.
