yes i believe so……. buried wood/roots. the trees were rotting/diseased and previously under a lake. even just one small fallen branch just 1/4 in buried, would have clusters forming, and i distintly remember the underwater trunk with clusters growing out of it. all the others were at the base of the trees or fallen debri.

Were these growing from the ground or directly from wood? Microscopy for this collection is here.
