me on your observation. Good call to return for follow-up. It’s very interesting. You may be onto something that’s not even written about in field guide descriptions. I see Rocky has agreed to do microscopy on your specimens; that’ll be excellent confirmation. Keep me posted.

Judi T., I added a couple of images to my Xylobolus frustulatus 237737 observation. The first ones were from 1 May and the new ones are from 22 May and are from the very same log. After drying , they do appear to be Xylobolus frustulatus. When I was there, I found more on another log about 20 feet away and they were still in the exudate stage.
Just thought you might want to know that they have that initial exudate stage that nobody seems to have ever seen.
