    I took this photograph many years ago in the woods outside of Seattle, in the foothills of the Cascades. Each bulb was aproximately 3/4" high. I've searched and searched, hopeing to identify these, but I've never had any luck. If anybody recognizes these, please let me know what they are.

    Thanks
    Helen

    Might be Guepiniopsis alpinus. Do you know the substrate (ie the species of the tree/log it is growing on)?

    I was thinking about that, plus looking at other pictures, and I believe it was a Hemlock log. (Color is off in this photo)

    Thanks

    The books say it grows on coniferous logs. Hemlock is a conifer, yes? (Sorry, I know so little about trees that aren't around me)

    So now we need an orthology expert...which is the most current, Heterotextus or Guipiniopsis?
