No specimen available

I just thought the honeycomb gill structure was really neat.

Color cream to orange (if it was September, I would have assumed they were small terracotta hedgehogs from the cap). Fiberous texture. Grows in group of about 10 on fallen but firm hickory branch. Found in dense pine/hemlock grove with little to no direct sunlight. Cap diameter size of a quarter ~0.75-1 inch (~2-3 cm). Very short stem.
