No specimen available

Found abundantly in late summer and fall months in these woods usually. Extremely tenacious mycelium attached to leaf litter and duff. Very dry cap and stem, with tough flesh. Common name is the “wood wooly foot,” which is fitting due to the extremely hirsute stem base of most specimens.

Temp: mid 60’s, heavy precipitation this week.

Attached article below claims this species has had some interesting anti cancer/anti bacterial results in tests with mice.
