    1. What is your reference for this species? I didn't find another photo of it with such hair-like structures? The shape and colour are not quite the same either. Do you know what tree it was on?

  4. I've never heard of hair-like structures on Exidia sp. Also, I agree with the others that this doesn't look like Exidia recisa morphologically. Posted 5 months ago
