We saw loads of these little mushrooms all over the Morgan Arboretum forest… on dead and dying trees, and on the lower sides of tall healthy-looking trees too. Trees of all diameters and species. The commonality is that these paper-thin and undulated-surface fungi always grow in what looks like a colony. Bu themselves, they appear in a range of gray-brown tones and hues against tree barks of similar colouring. I wonder if that is some sort of protection against predators. Interestingly, the bark almost always looks dry and devoid of other proponents of decay, such as moss or lichen. I also wonder why they seem to only grow on lower parts of the trees. I didn’t notice if they were growing in darker areas, because the sun seems to always find them and highlight them.

One thing that inspires my imagination is the possibility of recreating architecture with their designs…
