No specimen available

he fungus was found on a small plateau near the stream that creates a small gorge on its way through the hills that reach an altitude 50-230 m. As seen on the leaves around mushrooms, it is a forest of vegetative origin, in which the main edificator hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) and Moesian beech (Fagus moesiaca),which specific environmental conditions (growth of the brook to the ground overshadowed opposing hill)llow to grow at such a low altitude. Parent material is very diverse, but it seems mostly limestone. The land is mostly water sediment, with a high proportion of gravel, covered with humus follow the hill, although a lot of humus and the annual production of this specific location, where it accumulates dead forest cover (leaf and branches that have small diameters of the species Fagus moesiaca and Crapinus betulus ) and environmental conditions (temperature amplitudes caused by the specific conditions of the gorge, the presence of streams and increased humidity throughout the year) corresponding decomposition rate, although part of the land during high water, at least twice a year, he was flushed and washed most of the material ends up in the river Danube. Macroclimatic conditions correspond to the gorge by the river Danube breaks through the slopes of the Carpathian mountains for centuries by building its way to the Black Sea, which is called the Iron Gate (Ђердап on Serbian).
