Description:

The close-up underside of the Oak Mazegill.
Incredibly woody and a complex structure.
I'm not certain it always occurs on oak but seems, in my experience, to prefer cut stumps.

It isn't always found on Oak, but can also be found on Sweet Chestnut. See here: http://www.ispotnature.org/node/705710
