I know very little about mushrooms.
Squaw Root is actually a plant, not a fungus. :-) Moved to the Plants category
moved to fungi category
Unfortunately, I'm just going through pictures I took while camping. I spotted many mushrooms. I can tell you that in the picture you'll see the early stage of fruit emerging with the brown cover.
yes, alright, but i get no more as a hazelnut in mind/imagination, when i try to think of an id. "fluted bird nest" (fam nidulariaceae) is clustered (same as hazelnut) but the shape:throws me of the track. ---wrer the fruitingbody solid or more like jelly. were they on the ground (roots) or on wood (saprotroph). the brown layer: is it some skin or hair-lke feathers!!! try to get some id-suggestion-ideas!!
They are definitely mushrooms that I uncovered by moving the damp leaves off of them. As you can see they were clustered closely together. We found them in groups like these all over our camp site. I would say in at least seven or eight locations.
it looks more like fruits/nuts. do you have some more pictures or a little bit description.??
