No specimen available

Brackets with gill-like underside. The gills, if that’s what they are, are wavy away from the cap edges and forked near them — very interesting. Found on rotting red pine (Pinus resinosa) or white pine (Pinus strobus) close to the chanterelles in Zone 04. The same fallen log has exhibited Pholiota and other wood-rotting fungi in the past.
