T. gibbosa on the same stump in July.
Description:

This is part of a large clump of T. gibbosa, and you can see the pores from above because most of the top surface is missing. Something or some event has removed it. I used to think this was done by snails or slugs, but the material is lying in little lumps all around, so it hasn't been eaten. The second photo is the same clump in July to verify its identification.
