Habitat/Location: Bottom of a forest ridge in Northwest Georgia. Growing on the root of a large, (dead) downed pine tree.

This appears to be a resupinate crust fungus. Pore surface is navy blue to gray and is arranged in a waved/overlapping pattern. I didn’t realize this was the fertile surface until I looked at the photos my macro lens captures. There is a lot of soil and what looks like larval casings on this surface.

“Top” surface is cream to blush and is slightly hairy and peeks out from edge of root. The texture feels a lot like cardboard egg crate container material!
