Wood chip fungi

Post by marksteer » Tue Jul 14, 2015 5:45 pm

Has any one got a list or reference to fungi that appear on wood chips? Interesting substrate because you often don't know what the wood is or where it has come from! I know a few.

Many thanks Gaby (SA iSpot?) and Mike. Lots to look out for! Possibly some 'new' to Uk - Agrocybe rivulosa was not recorded here until 2004 I think
