then crawl onto some available surface to produce their fruit bodies. I have seen them use other types of hard, woodrotting mushrooms before as a fruiting surface, but it is probably just random or ones in proximity to their feeding grounds.

nice photos BTW; thanks so much for sharing your corner of the myco-world.
