This fungus was found near a black oak tree surrounded by shade, dead leaves, and plant foliage for cover. It was located about .25 miles away from the street.

It had a slight greenhouse smell to it.

The stipe of this fungus was smooth, and it was 4.4 cm long and 1.2 cm wide. It was equal in shape, and it was solid on the inside. On the outside, it was a cream tan color, and on the inside, it was a white cream color. The base was caespitose.

Overall, this fungus looked like a tan coral. The thick base at the bottom of the stipe branched into many small endings.

There was no spore print obtained for this fungus, but the overall spore shape was ovoid. These spores ranged from 11-13.8 × 3.6-4.0 micrometers.
