i should have kept this specimen. it was riddled with maggots, so i let it be and will return to the spot in the future (i hunt there almost everyday).
first time i saw this though.
hope it’s not the last.

I have seen examples of mycorrhizal mushrooms growing from what appeared to be wood. For instance, Suillus pictus growing out of the bark of a living oak tree. I think the mycelium crawls up the tree…

Looks like a Cort to me.
