Growing from exposed sandy soil among moss especially in small pockets between roots. There were many more more under the surface than were immediately visible. Overall they’re blue-gray, at the time not exceeding 1.5" across, creating crowded clusters in small crevices. Several of the pockets were lined with what looks like cobwebs, likely mycelium. One was filled with mushrooms growing from all sides, upside-down off the ‘ceiling’, starting off pointing straight down then forming a “U”. The pore surface often runs along the underside of the stem. Nearby trees: Douglas fir, western hemlock, western red cedar, spruce.

Super cool find. I didn’t know these existed til today. Just about the most aesthetic little chalk blue polyporoid basidiocarp it could possibly be.
