Observation 285793: Coltricia Gray

Found in an area where mixed hardwoods were giving way to white pine. Lots of various understory plants.

Entire outer surface of mushroom is velvety and, for lack of a better word, furry. About 2 inches across and about as tall. Stipe woody. No evidence of gills or pores on underside.

Interior of mushroom is very woody towards the center. Outer 1/2 inch or so is “furry” and can easily be peeled off in sections.

Deformed Coltricia sp. like Coltricia cinnamomea?

After conferring with others elsewhere, I am leaning towards this being some species of Coltricia that has a growth deformity. Possibly Coltricia cinnamomea based upon the internal striations, coloration, and habitat.
