your diagnostic is probably better than mine

My best resource is Arora and he only mentions tessulatus, as do many of my eastern field guides, although some of them still refer to it, and I originally learned it at Pleurotus ulmarius.

There isn’t much beech, the main dominating species at Bay Beach are basswood, boxelder, cottonwood, elm hophornbeam and buckthorn. No cypress, though I can see how someone might mistake the flying buttress root system of a mature cottonwood as cypress.

I did look for the blue green fungus today. No luck, perhaps too late. Still I did find a good variety of species and it did get me to spend three hours out in the woods looking at every tiny little fungus.

It’s also inspired me to look through the 13 years of photos I have at Bay Beach and other nature centers in this area and see if I can inventory what has appeared.

Is one of the trees I haven’t learned, is there a dense beech population in that park?

I believe this observation was on Box Elder. The pilei lacked any sort of marbling.

many of these today at Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary. Most impressive was one that was the size of a dinner plate.
