Fungi growing in cavity inside old large tree stump. Cap mature and some rain damage. Fungi cap beginning to show signs of maturity and deterioration. Cutting of fungi caused bruising. I have dried the fungi but doubtful about its archiving value. Images for records of the area. Recent heavy rainfall in the area exceeding 6 inches in past 24 hours.Leeches have appeared everywhere and a continual nuisance to person and gear.

Daniel, Somehow I missed loading the Cap. Have now loaded image. This fungi was in only average condition and I had a problem extracting it out from the cavity in the stump..

just below the pores, but appears to have been more firmly attached to the cap edges than the stipe. Red above the attachment, light pink below. Pores are mostly yellow, but some (bruising?) black and others bright blue. Stipe is thin, long.

Sorry, Ian. I don’t see any photos of the top of the pileus. Might be a Strobilomyces … again.
