Hydnellum?

Asked October 19, 2016, 11:16 AM EDT

hi,

i found this thing (a mushroom probably) outside my office's small garden. It is oozing some liquid from it and engulfing the surrounding plants and and an aloe . I thought it was a type of hydnellum that i saw in internet but then I am in South America, Peru. Is it possible that you can help me to identify this? the smaller one is the inner part of the thing. There were two of these things growing so I broke one of them into pieces. It is under a Delonix regia.

Outside United States mushrooms

This could be a species of Hydnellum. However, you have posted to a North American extension service, and many fungi in North America do not grow in South America.
