…teeth, but I’m obviously no expert. I was able to scrape some off with a knife, and they resembled tiny spines. They bruised very quickly – a brownish red color. Also, the entire fruiting body was at least 20 cm wide and was growing directly on the ground. I didn’t see it at first because there was a lot of overgrowth in this area of the woods. The nearest tree was about 15 feet away. I’ve added a few additional shots in case they can help with ID.
