at the accompanying observations and again at the original images, I’m leaning more toward C. fruticulosa as an ID. Still couldn’t hurt to scope it, especially since so few obs of that sp. have been scoped, if any.

And what they develop from/in, at least to start.

I can re-visit this location whenev… and yes, huge amounts of this under the log!

I can probably use the microscopes at school… what should I look for?

EDIT: Here is why I proposed the original name: http://mushroomobserver.org/133241 and http://mushroomobserver.org/128887

Those were the same log that me and my friend found on two different days lol

It looks like there may have been two stages of this — whatever it is — growing beside each other. Can you revisit this observation for more photographs? Do you have access to a microscope?
