Observed growing from a dead log in the cloud forest (El Dorado trail) at Jama-Coaque Reserve.
Crown dieback, lessions and oozing cankers.
This fungi was growing on a tree in Redwood Canyon.
These two fungi were found growing on the side of a dead log in a redwood forest. They were found in partial shade underneath redwood tress. The fungi are sphere-like and have a hard texture. The length in diameter ranges from 1-1.5 cm across. The fungi seemed dry and was not moist or wet to the touch.
Considering puffball? Looks like a truffle?
