When: 2013-10-28

Collection location: John Dean Provincial Park, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada [Click for map]

48.6188° -123.4361° 191m

Who: Bryce Kendrick (bryce@mycolog.comj)

No specimen available

Notes:
This is a bright yellow turf on the surface of Suillus species, growing under Douglas fir. It is clearly killing the tissue of the bolete. The sporangiophores and sporangia have a considerable amount of an oil-soluble pigment. The turf is very delicate, and it took svereal attempts to make mounts that showed both the larger multi-spored sporangia and the smaller 1-spored sporangioles. Both of these structures are shown in the photomicrographs.
