A wide range of broadleaved tree species.
Coniferous tree species.
At and around the base of the tree and along the lower stem, and on fallen trees and tree parts.
Annual caps. A varied genus in terms of species though all species tend to have the distinct conical cap and white spore. Most species have very small and small individual caps though they are often grouped in to busy clusters.
Considered saprotrophic. Attributes to a white rot of the wood substrate. Presence on standing trees indicates localised dysfunction including on buried roots when appearing from the ground.
