Unusual fungi

Post by Ken Ramos »

Came across this while walking through the woods beside my home. The substrate was a rotting piece of hardwood tree limb amid a tangle of honeysuckle, on which I stumbled, literally, upon, dislodging the fungus. So as not to waste a good "trip," I gathered it up and brought it home for an examination using the dissecting microscope.

It looks like the fertile surface of Phlebia tremellosa.

That is great! I checked the fungus on-line and against a couple of books that I have. Without knowing exactly what to look for sometimes, identification can be painstaking if you are not familiar with what you have found. Thanks for the ID David. 8)
