Back in mid-November 2009, I came across Phyllotopsis nidulans that had recently fruited at Fort Yargo State Park. Just before the New Year, I walked along that trail again and was surprised that the fungus was still in good condition. The color had faded a little and the ‘hairy’ appearance was quite distinct.

Note: Originally, I
misidentified this mushroom as Ruddy Panis (Panus rudis). Thanks to Ron Peterson (University of Tennessee) and
Ryan Mooney for correcting this identification.
