Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Found growing profusely in one small area in Zone 06, in moss around the roots of a very large and old Betula allegheniensis. Those roots formed buttresses spanning a small creek and the tree’s trunk is two feet wide or more near its base.

There were dozens of these orange guys, up to 2cm wide and often in little clumps like the one depicted in the first photo, through an area maybe four or five feet in diameter.
