Radulomyces confluens

Post by Steve » Thu Apr 07, 2016 6:47 am

Found in a Sheffield woodland on underside of a broadleaf log.
Identified on macroscopic features and spores. Spores 9-11 x 7-8. The glistening surface seen at x 45 is due to the spores. I think I remember one author describing the fungus as having a smell akin to hospital disinfectant – but if so this is very faint to me and not convincing.
