A Little White Crep, Crepidotus epibryus. This little fellow, about 8mm across, was growing with others on the side of a rotting branch.

A Little White Crep, Crepidotus epibryus.

This little fellow, about 8mm across, was growing with others on the side of a rotting branch. I was impressed with the symmetry when viewed from the underside.

  1. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think this is likely a Crepidotus species. Check out the gallery of Schizophyllum commune to get a good look at their "split" gills. https://www.jungledragon.com/specie/7283/photos

    I also can possibly see some of the brown spores associated with Crepidotus when I zoom in here?

    1. Hi there, Christine! Wish I had you along on this “walk”. Have to agree with you about a Crepidotus species. I got taken away with the gills and the “fuzzy top”. Right now I am thinking C. epibryus. Any other ideas for this quickly filling up head of mine? Posted 2 months ago
      1. This is Lisa (not Christine). Haha! ;P Creps can be a hard bunch to ID properly. Do you have a shot of the pilei? Posted 2 months ago
        1. That is funny. Must be too early in the morning. Had to look up the definition of pilei before responding. Don’t have a photo but can remember they were quite “hairy”. I guess I was more interested in the gills from a photographic POV. But I do have this one,

          1. I am somewhat surprised that Morpheme has not joined in on this discussion.

            1. You can't assume she watches every post. To ensure involvement, currently it's best to direct message her.

              In the future we should get a proper "mention" feature.

              1. Didn’t think of that. Thanks! Posted 2 months ago
          2. Looks crep-ish to me too. And, lovely! Actually, the shape of it reminds me of a butterfly. Posted 2 months ago
            1. Christine, (or is that Lisa?... fooling.) thanks for the input. Started to rain here so may have to wait for more photos. It sort of reminds me of some oceanic beast. A nudibranch? Posted 2 months ago
              1. Haha! And, oohhh - yes...It would make an awesome nudibranch! Posted 2 months ago
        2. Hello there, went back today (it was raining) and finally found the branch these fellows were on. A photo of the pileus,
