Observation 119129: Nodulisporium cecidiogenes Jørg. Koch
When: 2012-12-04
Who: goatshoes
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These fungi were very similar to crowded parchment but much more rounded so I didn’t want to add the speices name. They were found on a rotting stump that I kicked over and there seems to be some slimy yellow action going on amongst them. They were more or less a tannish,grayish, and or an off-white color. The stump was covered in them.

Thanks a lot! The arcticle was very informative although it doesn’t look as if this speices has ever been spotted in the USA but only in Poland and Central Europe and the arcticlr I think was published in 2008…fairly recently. But I must agree with your suggestion for they seem to be most similar. Thanks again!

The fungus looks similar to Nodulisporium cecidiogenes which grows on Coniophora putanea. You could find informations in that paper: Koch, J. (1994): Growth of Coniophora puteana modified by a gall-inducing mycoparasite. Mycological Research. 98(11): 1263-1271.
