All specimens on hemlock.

Warm/wet period coming only a few days after a several mornings which featured temperatures below 0F. Five days ago the high temp for the day was around 8F. I don’t know is this fungus has the ability to freeze/thaw and then revive. I think these are all newly-emerged specimens.

Yellow spore print.
