I was worried there was another species involved here.

After some research, I revisited the log this morning. My apologies to all. It does appear to be hardwood.

From a “rotting conifer log”?

Walt? I’ve seen F. hepatica, but always from a hardwood host, usually Oregon White oak. I’ve never heard of one from a conifer. Am I wrong? Does F. hepatica colonize both conifers and hardwoods?

Thanks so much for correction.

It’s very difficult with such a young, small specimen.
