Unknown Resupinate Polypore

Description:

Bright white maze-like (possibly on the way to becoming teeth?) pored surface. Gauze-like around edges with light pink to sky blue coloring. Droplets of water or clear exudate around edges. It looked fairly young and fresh. Update: Light pink edging is likely a bacterial colony. The light blue patch at the bottom is a species of Byssocorticium fungus. Note: There is a little critter squirting water in some of these photos! :P I'm thinking a nematode?

Habitat:

Found on the underside of a highly rotted log in a dense mixed hardwood/coniferous forest in Northwest Georgia (Gordon County), US.

Christine, I'm definitely going to do that! I'm very curious to know what it could be!

Wow, so I love that little creature on the fungus! Great shots of it squirting water. You should consider making a separate spotting for it. Hope someone can ID it!
