Recent Mushrooms - November 2013

I found all of these mushrooms at John A Latsch state park.

Mossy Maze Polypore - Cerrena unicolor

Coral-pink Merulius - Phlebia incarnata 

Pictured with False Turkey Tail, Sterium ostrea, which Coral-pink Merulius often grows with.  It's sort of strange looking at this stage, but from other pictures I've seen, it'll grow and expand into more of a typical polypore shelf-shape

Trembling Merulius - Phlebia tremellosus

Resinous Polypore - Ischnoderma resinosum?

This mushroom is often pictured with a white margin, and dark-colored droplets on the pore surface.  The droplets are only present when the mushroom is fresh, and I think the white margin must darken with age.  It's pretty soft for a polypore, almost in a cuddly sort of way.

Pear-shaped Puffball - Morganella pyriforme

One of the few puffballs that grows on wood.
