This is another of life’s sorrowful mysteries – is it a Resinous Polypore, or maybe a Mossy Maple Polypore, or something entirely different – sigh. It had fruiting bodies three years ago and those are still on the tree, dried out, tough as nails, dark, and covered with moss and/or algae. Now it has new fruiting bodies – this is the largest and it’s weeping amber-colored tears.
My appreciation to relayer51 who gave me the ID. I’m a woosy when it comes to attaching a name to something when I’m not sure, especially with mushrooms and other fungi, so the help from experts is always welcomed:>)
