Great shot and collection! We have a few common pine cone dwellers in my neck of the woods here in Washington. The similar to your observation, gilled species Strobilurus trullisatus and a cone dwelling, stemmed cup species which can occasionally be prolific called Ciboria rufofusca… Of course, we both get the pine cone tooth, or ear pic fungus Auriscalpium vulgare both here and down South if I recall. Glad to see another Mycophile who digs(figurative and literal) cone dwelling fungi and other unique substrate inhabiting species :). Be sure each time you encounter any species to take at least three shots for easy identification and keying. Image of cap or in situ context, an image of the underside(hymenium-where the spores come from, whether gilled, toothed, pored or cupped/smooth, etc.), and one with something for size comparison like a pocket knife, small ruler or your left hand. ID’s for those who live and breathe everything fungi can nail an ID for you in seconds instead of minutes or hours that way ;). Keep at it and happy hunting! Fungally, DTH
