Phaeoisaria clavulata

Post by Steve » Sat Apr 23, 2016 5:01 pm

We found this at Longshaw on Thursday on dead wood under a magnificent elm tree. It looked like a slight greyish corticioid. I used Ellis and Ellis to key it to Phaeoisaria clavulata. This is a Hyphomycete, with a structure quite similar to the Dutch Elm fungus - tight bundles of hyphae called synnemata, with conidia budded off the ends. There are currently 69 FRDBI records.
