Genea sp. I found these hollow, amorphous fungi found under a log, in soil (and surrounded by mycelia). At a dense mixed forest edge, under mostly hickory and oak trees. Gordon County, GA, US. January 20, 2021. This was a cluster of two that easily popped apart into two pieces in my hands. They were quite fuzzy!<br />
<br />
If I can relocate them, I&#039;m sending these off for sequencing and study at the University of Florida! There is a research team working on this rare and wonderful genus right now...and trying to sort out and name North American species. <br />

  1. Side note: Don't these kind of look like tiny chicken nuggets? :P Posted one month ago
  2. That is awesome!! I thought they looked like fuzzy clam cakes. Or, maybe apple fritters. But. chicken nuggets fit too ;). Posted one month ago
    1. Ohhh, I agree with apple fritter! They were so bizarre! I'm headed out (bundled up) once Jason gets home to see if I can relocate them. *crossing my fingers and toes and arms and legs* Posted one month ago
      1. Yay! But, especially stay warm!! *I'm watching you* Posted one month ago
        1. I'm a little bit chilled, but I wasn't out for very long. I relocated it pretty fast! Yay! Now to air dry it for a couple of days, wrap it in paper towel, and ship it out! Posted one month ago
          1. Awesome! My Twinsie is the coolest <3. Posted one month ago
