I saw the thread you started @ bN and noticed what looked like a white stripe on the needles as well.  Ignore my "unmistakably 2-needles" comment from earlier. :)

I see what you were looking at in the first picture now, I get what happened. And the wet bark makes it look like a pitch pine. I would post the whole tree, but every time I try to post another picture here my computer craps out.

Wow, that is a great trunk! You don't see that on a EWP until the tree has AGE. Good find. Only 2 feet tall? Excellent. THIS is the kind of EWP that really has potential as bonsai. Don't rush it, let it recover at least 12 months before doing much of anything. So don't try to repot or style it until 2016 or 2017. Fall of 2016 you might do a little 'bud management' but other than cleaning out dead needles I'd leave it alone for at least one full year. This tree has a lot of possibilities in it. Mature bark on such a small tree is really a treasure. Normally you don't see that until a tree is approaching 50 to 80 years. If, when you cut a large branch or root, count the rings, it will give you a clue to the age of this baby. That bark is classic P. strobus mature bark.

Nice find, great collection. Cool.

Dan W.:
Great looking tree. I look forward to your work with it. Be sure to update!
