I want to say the bottom was teethed, but it was more like a network of gills, started horn/cup like but flattened and got floppy when mature. Very jelly like and almost transparent. Smelled a bit like bleach.
On stump, not sure, but dont think it was a pine, some kind of deciduous tree stump I think. Got some direct sunlight, but was usually overcrowded by grasses growing around the stump, hiding it a bit.
