I haven’t seen this exact species since this observation, but the monsoons start soon so I’ll be able to take more photos.

Now there’s an Auricularia I haven’t seen before. I’ve only known the hairy ones to be called either A. fuscosuccinea or A. polytricha, but these are so hairy they’re spiky. Looks like the lovechild of Auricularia and Cookeina tricholoma.
