Yeah I have, i guess i was talking about more mold than anything, ive got myself some mycotoxicosis going on, so im negative towards anything with a fruiting body thats smaller than 2mm
Missing some good eats. Try to make sure there is Russula brevipes fruiting nearby.
There were more Tapinella atrotomentosas that were not so far away, I should have put two and two together, interesting stuff guy, im going to have to do some research on parasitic fungi, as I only know about how sick they can make you haha.
also common on several hypogeous fungi, especially Rhizopogons, which are often hypogeous relatives of Suillus (with a few Boletes thrown in for good measure).
But I’ve also found it growing on Hymenogaster, which is a hypogeous Cortinariaceae, according to Field Guide to North American Truffles.
Someone told me chrysospermus should mean something like “golden spored”. Oddly it starts out as white, though while still embalming it’s host. I didn’t know it also attacks Tapinella. I think that’s my quota for new knowledge today.
talks about the bolete mould also attacking T. atrotomentosa. Perhaps there are others that also parasitize Tapinella…
But the mold doesn’t look like Hypomyces chrysospermus to me, and that species parasitizes boletes. My guess is that fungus that makes mushrooms look like they have a big white beard, can’t remember the name at the moment.
Now im curious about the parasite.
