don’t have any micro pictures. I’ll go back and look at them again sometime soon.

I think it’s mycorrhizal root tips. Roots typically penetrate dead wood in search of the nutrients that fungi make available through decomposition of the wood.

put these under the microscopy and couldn’t find anything fungal looking – hyphae, spores, etc.

I have never seen this…,
