Observation 180272: Tubulifera arachnoidea Jacquin
When: 2014-09-24
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing from the basement ceiling, beneath our bathroom. No noticeable moisture.

One month later the fruiting body looks very much the same, maybe a tad darker. Tried to pluck it and it was soft on the inside and very powdery on the outside.
