Leucogloea compressa in Harford Co., Maryland (5/25/2013). Identified by Lance Biechele. Lance notes the following: "This is an interesting Fungus Imperfecti that forms small 'whitish' cushions on dead hardwood. There is no sexual stage, but the fungus can easily be determined under a scope by its distinctive conidia. Some authors place this species in the Family Nectriaceae." Photo by Bill Hubick.
