With gills, the cap was approximately 15 centimeters wide and round but flat. The cap was a little slimy but mostly dry, like Hydnum. The cap had maggots in the gills. The mushroom stood at approximately 4 centimeters tall. These mushrooms, were 5 centimeters from the ground, like the Hydnum fungi.

When in the woods, my group (4-B) had spotted a group of mushrooms buried underneath leaves in groups of three. They had a little sun, as shown from the picture, yet they were shdaded from the trees and fallen leaves. These mushrooms were the same type of fungi, and I think that fungi was Hydnum Repandum (Hydnum).
