they’ll often fruit off of partially or completely buried wood.

I also just remembered that I have also seen this species growing on Laurel Sumac in San Diego.

There were Live Oak, Tan Oak, Madrone and Douglas Fir all over the place. There were also sprinklings of Manzanita and several other brushy trees that I’m not familiar with.

These were growing right from the ground, so there must have been some decomposing wood buried there somewhere.

Almost always on Oak around here

but I’ve also seen it on Eucalyptus, and Byrain found it on conifer wood (which is apparently pretty rare for this species).

Found these guys near Water Dog Lake yesterday. Fruiting must have been triggered in a similar manner. Do you know what it was growing under?
