Fungal mats on trees
Fungal mats are spore-bearing structures that grow under the bark of red oaks killed by oak wilt. Fungal mats can form on newly dead trees or firewood cut from infected red oaks. A fungal mat creates "pressure cushions" that raise the bark slightly, causing it to crack.

The sporulating mat emits a fruity odor that attracts sap feeding beetles.
