Were these growing from wood?

All obs. need to include substrate, 1onevision. Substrate is what the fungus was growing on.

Pholiota are found mostly on wood or woody debris. They are fairly easy to determine because they have a scaley stipe (sometimes rings of scales), scaley cap, a veil which often leaves an annulus on the stipe.

Usually Pholiota are brown-, cinnamon-brown-, or rusty-brown-spored.
