please consider sending it to Forestry Sciences Lab, 3200 Jefferson Way, Corvallis, OR 97330 after drying the specimen. Include a self-addressed, stamped postcard so the people there can reply to you. It is unusual to find Scleroderma growing on wood. They are typically terrestrial fungi. Pseudoboletus parasiticus, by definition, must grow from Scleroderma. It’s possible that either the Scleroderma or the parasite are new species.
