Do we know this wood is treated? Looks like it might be redwood or cedar. Are there any Dacropinax with this morphology which is an exact fit for C. cornea?

had to downgrade this because of substrate. I have seen dacropinax on treated wooded very often, but never colocera…

Thanks for the help with this Myxomop!
