Who: Shawn Fischer (Fischbones)

No specimen available

These images are taken over about 4 month time frame.

Growing on a very decayed hardwood snag. Upland of Lanana Creek in Nacogdoches. Elevation is roughly 300’ above sea level. This area is moist soil, but not bottomland. Growth of the specimens appeared to slow/stop in the winter. Summer growth has been visible over the late winter early spring.

Cap – brown in color. Cracked, and appears to be nearly separate from margin. Distinct color variation between brown pileus and very white margin/hymenium.

Margin – White, bruising brown/dark when rubbed. Nearly separate from pileus.

Pore surface – White bruising brown/dark when touched. Small pore surface. I don’t want to disturb these growths, but plan on taking a sample soon for phylogenetic testing. I will update photos of pores and cross section then.

New growth begins as all white amorphous shape, and will develop over time to the dark brown/near black pileus. Will go from white to rusty/orangish color/ to brown.
