    I found this branch while chasing my dog around the yard and I'm pretty darn sure it's auricularia auricula. I wanted a second opinion before cooking and sampling.

    I'll try to get this running on cardboard to start. Is cupside down on foil the way to do it for a spore print?

    Yup, might not be exactly A. auricula but it is close enough.
