You rock! Let me know what else you find growing under Beech. As it is not as frequently encountered as oak, it seems to get ignored, but I suspect it will have a lot of associations. It may have been well studied and I don’t know it…, check this one:

I think you’re right Martin, it was near a Beech tree. Apologies.

T. balloui to be normally under Beech – I don’t know if that is diagnostic or if Elm is also often a host. I am amazed at the number of references to Elm. Isn’t that essentially a (temporarily) extinct tree?
