I am not 100% certain of the host tree, everything was very moss-covered. As we walked the forest changed from Alder to Doug fir and pine, and this was found in the conifer side. There certainly could have still have been alder in there.

This is common on Alnus rubra, Red Alder. I think it would be odd to find it on a conifer since it seemed so host specific when I found it in WA.

Sadly Debbie, I did not….

I had never heard of this one before…did you check out the gelatinous gill edges?
