Observation 112852: Tremellodendron G.F. Atk.

When: 2012-07-29

Collection location: Glen Alton Preserve, Giles Co., Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Mark Prosser (mark prosser)

No specimen available

An odd looking mix of coral and, or club fungi found in a moist rain drainage area, which may account for the unusual form which reminds me of chicken feet, etc. Woods were conifer dominant with other oak-hickory mix near. The jointed nature of the fingers look similar to a club-like Xylaria species, while the base, the fine tips, and the general nature have similarities to types of coral, Clavaria species. These may also have been effected by a fungal parasite, which may have altered their form. Pictures are poor, however I thought it worth posting due to their unusual nature.
