Collection location: Baird Creek Greenway, Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA [Click for map]

Who: Matt Welter (mattfungus)

No specimen available

Notes:
I found three different specimens and took thre driest one home to reconstitute. After 5 hours of soaking it had much of the same appearance of on that had reconstitute from snowmelt, including more of a brownish or cordavan color in brighter/sunlight. The three specimens were found in three locations in the greenway, on two different kinds of wood.

that may help separate E. glandulosa from E. recisa is that glandulosa (often) has tiny pimples distributed along the fertile surface. Also, recisa tends to form ear-like masses not unlike the material shown in this observation.
