Comments: It is interesting to follow how aethalium was developing and decaying over almost one month period. ‘Fibrous’ layer called hypothallus is seen on picture 3. Cushion-shaped aethalium measured approximately 12 × 4 cm and was about 2 cm thick (when first photographed). I found six such aethalia this day on three stumps in only a few meters distance.
