When: 2011-02-16

Collection location: Montgomery Co., Maryland, USA [Click for map]

Who: Martin Livezey (MLivezey)

No specimen available

I did not see that many fruiting bodies of this last year…, Either I missed them, or there is an increase on the way because this black ropy stuff is everywhere – mostly on newly exposed wood where the bark has just dropped off.
