how a sawed log would have gotten there.
anything is possible though.
a lot of Lentinus pins were present on plenty of different wood.
i’m going back to that spot tomorrow to check it out again.
hopefully i can find it.

right-hand side of log appears to have been sawed.

i don’t think so.
this decaying log was in a remote Florida swamp.
the chances of someone else being in that location is not likely.

Is this fruiting from a nearly buried log?

If so, may be someone trying to grow Lentinula edodes. Check out some of the recent obs. here.
