Right you are. A fair amount was cropped to make this photo larger.

It is not easy to find most of the time, but when it is out, it’s great!


Have you seen this bluish bloom on the twig?

Is this Terana caerulea? I regularly find this in the Mediterranean to Atlantic area of Europe but do not know if it also does occur in North America.
About the white one there is no telling by eye.

I’ve been in st Barts and Seattle at work… I’ll look at it closer at home, but what I can say is that when looking for crust fungi, I often come across this type of sclerotia spreading inside logs. This shape has occurred on occasion when trying to branch from one surface to another close surface
