is very striking in the scope. Just look at the heavily encrusted hyphae without clamps, I think Mycobank has provided microscopical picture of the species. I think P. fallax is right if it is Piloderma. P. byssinum has whitish fruitbodies with whitish or no strands and P. lanatum is very inconspicuous greyish thin and has two-spored basidia (if synonymy with bicolor is right I never found it). But then again in America there are other species for sure too. But as said to get the genus right in the scope shouldn’t be a problem.

But I have this chunk of wood in the trunk of my car, and I just got a nice DSLR camera adapter for my scope. What should I look for?

I am trying to figure these yellow mycelium strands out and I have sequenced one very similar collection.

LOOKS like Piloderma

but there are a few similar corticious lookalikes. Did you do scope?
