  1. So neat! Could it be a slime mold?

    Or, perhaps the "baby" stage of something like Fomitiporia robusta? They seem to look like lumps when not mature. Although, they don't grow together like this: https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/485958-Fomitiporia-robusta/browse_photos

    Or, perhaps it's not fungus at all. Maybe someone dropped a platter of dinner rolls while hiking ;P.

    1. I will revisit them a few times to see what developed. At the moment I can’t work out if there are pores or what. They are very lumpy and absolutely almost impossible to get a pice off the tree trunk. Posted 3 months ago
