My interest in the fungi in the forest surrounding my garden is in their contribution to our ecosystem. They also sprout directly into the garden and the compost piles.
For identification, I rely on Seek by iNaturalist, reference books, and web searches.
Found this parasitic fuzzy mold on a mushroom that sprouted at the base of beech and maple trees. Also nearby, an old northern oak is slowly dying.
Identification with the help of the Seek app by iNaturalist.
