when it comes to fungi all things are possible.

I will say this, these were all growing very very close to each other, I think they’re just lutes that have funky growth because of the cold temps that just rolled in here.

I have seen Gymnopilus luteofolius take on strange forms when the temps drop.

Interesting critter

The fibers on the cap are more prominent in this and one of your earlier posts than others on MO with the same name. It looks like you may have a different variety…, or maybe species..,there. Do you think that is possible?
