Observation 198582: Trametopsis cervina (Schwein.) Tomšovský
When: 2015-02-08
0 Sequences

Notes:
Specimens were found growing gregariously on both sides of a rotted log, fused horizontally and in shelving clusters. In spite of the fact that they appeared to be old and a bit worse for the winter weather, they were still very flexible. There was one additional specimen on top of the log (see last photo) which appeared quite “disorganized”, for lack of a better word.

I had only been “into” mushrooms for about 6 months when I posted this one. Hopefully, since then, I’ve become more conscious of details such as the very valid ones you pointed out. I appreciate your thorough explanation. Very helpful.
