Growing at the base of birch stump

I forgot we can post pictures here or I would have posted my white Norway spruce mushroom here too. I forget a lot of things lately and I blame it on my lack of finding hericiums this year.

These little beauties make me think of sulfur tufts or brick caps. They are growing at the base of a very old and decomposing birch.

They ranged in size from a pea up to a half dollar.

The spore print is in progress. I had time to type this up now so I had to do it without the spore print otherwise it would probably never get done.

They have a light scent but it's not mushroomy. I can not describe it. It's not bad but it's not like some mushrooms which I really enjoy.

It has a very pretty purplish brown spore print a bit like this mixed with brown.

Re: Growing at the base of birch stump

I was a little surprised to find them at the base of an old birch. Birch is one of those trees you can't misidentify even when they are nearly decomposed. That bark hangs in there forever!

I tried to find the birch again and couldn't.

I sure like the color of the spore print. Wonder how it would do as eye shadow?

Re: Growing at the base of birch stump

I thought bricks had a greenish spore print, are there different types? I've picked lots of bricks but haven't been out lately.

Would the green spore prints be sulfur tufts?

All Hypoloma have Purplish Brown spore color. H. fascicular & H. capnoides can start out with yellow to yellowish green gills but the spore print is still Purplish Brown. That can also have specimens that won't produce spores at all. Here is a picture of H. lateritium on the left, and H. capnoides on the right. H.capnoides will almost always grows on Pine.
