crust on hazel

Post by gary »

Came across this down here in Totnes yesterday. on rotten hazel log.
I'm a bit clueless regarding crusts/resupinates.
at 50x mag it appears to have teeth?
Any ideas or do I need serious microscopy.?

Hi,

Don't take this as being a certainty, as I'm not very good with crusts either - but to me, this has the general look of Schizopora paradoxa - Split Crust.

Basidioradulum radula - Toothed Crust looks quite similar too, (but I think that one often has teeth more akin to Hedgehog Fungus).

I think microscopy would be needed to be anything like sure.

Regards,
Mike.

I had a look at the edges with a hand lens and there they look more like pores.
Pretty sure now it is Schizopora paradoxa.
Thanks Mike
