Re: mushroom on Cretan beach

Thanks for the replies! I looked for Gyrophragmium dunalii and found several photos of a quite similar mushroom, also similar in habitat. Certainly 'something like'- which admittedly doesn't sound too close. But given the extreme habitat I would expect there to be few options. That said, in searchin...

mushroom on Cretan beach

End of April I was on Crete, and during a short visit to the beach I found this 'three-cornered hat' fungus. The 3-cornered hat stage probably means that the fruit is already decomposing, but it does so in a consistent way; I found quite few with all this 3-cornered hat structure. The few fresher on...

Re: brown patches on Laurel tree

Yes, it looks like that - but I don't think it is. I already checked with a lichen expert, who agreed that it's most likely a non-lichenized fungus.

brown patches on Laurel tree

Dear forum,
I wonder whether someone recognizes this fungus. It was vissible as circular patches on trunks of laurel trees in the laurel forest of Tenerife. Very little could been seen at close range, but the patches strongly stand out from some distance.

Your imput is appreciated!

Re: Exidia plus something else?

Dear Chris, Andreas, Thanks for your thoughts! I'm afraid I've no better pictures, I was hunting for birds (yak, but yes) and this was an encouter by accident. I looked for the white inclusions but find it hard to see them in the picture - next time I'll search for these in the field though! So, lot...

Exidia plus something else?

Dear forum,

Today I found some white blobs which I assume belong to some Exidia species. But I wonder what the "blackberries" are: incipient white blobs, or something else entirely?

Re: Unknown black fungus on wood (was Annulohypoxylon?)

Oh what a horror! Taxonomy sometimes is not too helpful :cry:

Thanks for the explanation though!

Re: Unknown black fungus on wood (was Annulohypoxylon?)

Thanks for your contributions!

Same in Dutch: Witches butter translates as "Heksenboter," which applies to Fuligo septica.

Exidia nigricans is "Zwarte trilzwam" in Dutch.

btw, is nigricans synonymous with glandulosa?

Unknown black fungus on wood (was Annulohypoxylon?)

Dear forum,

Last Sunday, I found these black shiny mushrooms on dead Poplar trunks. I expect something like Annulohypoxylon spec., but would like to check here. Also, any chance at further ID? (Probably not :? )

Thanks for your input!

Moss devouring fungus

Dear forum, I photographed this moss massacre at an Elm trunk in the Netherlands; the moss is (I think) Orthotrichum. Fungal ID would be great, but I've also some questions about the structures. What are the white 'cussions', are the yellowish balls just old white cussions? And do the red specks hav...
