Stump fungus

This was on the cut surface of an old stump.

Fungus on old wood.

It had rained the day before, and the stump felt dampish, but the fungus was wetter. The fungus was solid, but the ligher areas felt soft, like velvet. I couldn't detect any scent, other than wet wood.

Zooming in. The dark lumps were higher, about an inch deep, harder and drier.

I have no way to identify this.


Este hongo crece en la superficie cortada de un tronco viejo. No lo puedo identificar. Mide como 1 cm de hondo en las partes más claras, y 2 cm en las bolas. Había llovido el dia anterior, y la madera se sentía húmeda, pero el hongo, en las partes claras, estaba más húmedo. Todo es sólido, pero las partes claras tienen la textura de terciopelo.

I'm having to moderate all comments because Blogger seems to have a problem notifying me. Sorry about that. I will review them several times daily, though, until this issue is fixed.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
