It’s most likely the same species.

it’s the same? similar? another example of a secotioid form of a cort in the greater BA? Christian’s find, I believe, was of one of the slime-coated corts.

the reason for your link is unclear.

any micrographs available for Christian’s sample?

It will be interesting to run the DNA on these and see if it doesn’t match up with something local that is not secotioid. There may well be genetic diversity enough in fungal populations that sometimes these secotioid forms get produced.

Were there basidia in the hymenium as well as spores?

If not, then perhaps this is a true secotioid species, or should I say primarily secotioid.

This is secotioid fungus. Check this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secotioid

nice Bolek.

did you look for spores already? I know its pretty immature.

Looks strange.

What’s the deal w/a mushroom that looks this way?
