Observation 115073: “Deuteromycota” R.T. Moore
When: 2012-10-26
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Collected by Steve Trudell, this chunk of wet bone (still w/meat) was colonized by something fungal-ish. Really disgusting to handle.

Fruit bodies growing inside. Looks like some penicillium also growing here. Plenty of bacteria for the slime molds and other small organisms; not sure what fungus would be eating here.
