Observation 141546: Podoscyphaceae sensu Reid
When: 2013-07-30
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found on a mossy hump, probably a buried tree rootball, in a damp, mixed hardwood, Kalmia latifolia and Rhododendron woods. The white basal jackets are mycelium. Spore print is the color of the fertile surface. The growth pattern is simple tubes, not the sort of rosettes present in pics of Podoscypha aculeate. Interiors of the tubes are smooth, not ribbed or rough.

Whatever this is—is there a publicly available description of the species?—it’s the same as shown in Mycowalt’s observation of 7/28/13.
