I went back to make sure. When looking at the pictures it does look like the stump has bark on it. However it is about a 40 yr old stump and is decaying in a pattern
that has ridges. I got out my knife and was able to expose some eucalyptus grain on a tap root.

This area is where I have lived for over 40 years. There is only Redwood and some Eucalyptus in this part of the canyon. I noticed the look of the bark in the picture so I’ll go back and look again. The last picture has some Eucalyptus bark laying on the mushroom.

The bark on the stump looks like it might be a conifer.
