both glandulosa and nigricans are identical under the scope, and merely can be distinguished by DNA. Not too useful.

E. glandulosa is described as having either a smooth or pimpled surface, like this one. hardwoods are the prefered host for both glandulosa and nigricans, but Mykoweb mentions Monterey Pine as another possible host for glandulosa here in CA; if Monterey Pine, why not Bishop Pine?

Exidia glandulosa is the most obvious and most commonly used ID for a black witches butter here in CA; that would be my choice at this point, and with this information.

but the weird surface texture wasn’t apparent until the photo was enlarged at home.
