We’ve encountered this small white hair fungi near Ganoderma spp. on fallen hardwood logs often this year. Really striking when abundant. This fruiting was underneath peeling bark from a fallen Alnus Rubra stump near a massive fruiting of Pleurotus ostreatus. The small whiskers are clear/white colored.
Temp: 50’s rainy (mixed sun breaks)

Extremely common in Pa.
It’s very widespread, and common in my area. I actually found some today, but it was not in prime condition like yours so I didn’t photograph it.
After looking at other posts on MO and reading up on it I believe it is definitely this species.
Never knew what this stuff was- Glad you helped me out :)
Is it common in your area too?
