Observation 285793: Coltricia Gray

Notes:
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.
