Hazelcup Fungus

Encoelia sp.


Little brown nodules, some seemed to have burst/broken open, others remained closed. The surface seemed rather bumpy, like toad skin. The insides of the opened ones seemed darker and smoother than the outside. Encoelia furfuracea?


Coming up from under the bark of dead alder sticks. Found while hiking in a remote, mountainous area near the coast.
