What the hell is this---?
    #948342 - 10/10/02 06:25 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)



I found this in a yard tightly matted to the grass. Low growing and tough. Pleasant smell. Waxy to touch on top surface and changing color to brown when touched. Very hard to yank out of the ground.
Any speculations?

It looks like Tremella foliacea (aka Brown Witch's Butter), but they usually grow on wood  :confused: .

The way it looks like it engulfed some of the grass as it grew suggests Hydnellum. Could you show us the underside (or edge) and cut it in half and tell (or show) us what that looks like? Also (this might be tough) see if you can find something that resembles a spore producing surface and see if you can get a spore print.

Happy mushrooming!

Sorry I can't give you anymore info on this except it was hard as hell to pull off the ground and real tough like moist wood. I took this pic last week. This is one of the shrooms I said that I didn't publish yet-remember? It seemed to be a woody texture
SORRY....
I found another one similar to this but slimy as hell and it covered about a 2 sq ft area.
I hope you are enjoying the pics that I am collecting.
