Delicate tan fungi with powdered-sugar like appearance to the caps. Looks like an animal took a bite out of one (photo 2)! The third photo shows the early phase of growth, whereas the primary photo shows mature specimens.


Grows on a cut log on a trail in temperate woodlands at Tanglewood Nature Center. Elevation around 1200’.


Also called astringent panus, luminescent panellus or the stiptic fungus.
