Sweet honey on the rock

A. nabsnona likes alder a lot (along with bigleaf maple) so I’m pretty sure that’s what it is.

the featured photo is of a cluster of 3 (1 missing) growing from a rock!

the rest were all found in soil underneath alder (hardwood) trees.
it could be possible they were colonizing the roots of the tree.

I think so!

This looks like A. nabsnona to me. color fits. maybe a little more clustered than normal. if it was on hardwood, then I’m sure about it.
