Thanks for the ID Clive! I really appreciate you going through my fungus spottings.
Scott, I'll have to revisit the site. These are next to a sapling structure. It is well mulched and kept watered so it doesn't dry out. Seems to be perfect conditions for fungi.
What a cool find!
If these fungi are near a wall or tree trunk you should try and find the tiny "eggs", or peridioles, that get dislodged by raindrops and stick to the nearest surface. A mycologist that I ride the bus with pointed them out to me. They look like little drops of paint or tar.
I never noticed them until I saw other spottings on Noah
I've seen these before, never knew what they were.
