This fell from about 30 feet from a maple tree. There were several on the ground that had fallen off when this stick fell to the ground and broke into several pieces. This was the only one not dialoged from it stick. Seem to be growing with Peniophora species of some sort. The current temp 19 degrees. That is ICE in the back ground. This fungi i thought it to be frozen but still had texture..

This was taken about 8 am in the morning. In low lying areas around here the temp can drop. very low. any water is solid ice.I live in area consider high in elevation according to West Virginia standards. The Average temp is about 26 to 35 for the last few days but Today Much warmer. I found it fascinating that there are different types of fungi that seem to become active when it gets cold and icy. I noticed this last year although they do not last very long. By January this place will be a fungi desert.
For that matter, 19 degrees in December at your latitude??
