Growing from a buried piece of wood on the forest floor have never found this one before.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
I have difficulty with X. longpipes and X. polymorpha (Dead Man's Fingers). X.p. is more often associated with beech, whereas X.l. tends to be found with sycamore. Did you notice whether the stem snapped? (That would suggest X.p.)
No Beech around only a few mature sycamore,sorry should have put that on.I had to cut it as it was rather solid.
