Observation 18952: Basidiodendron deminutum (Bourdot)Luck-Allen
When: 2008-05-07
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: This looks like a small film on the wood laid by a snail but actually is a heterobasidiomycete. There are similar species that are really called “snail track”. It’s a beautiful fungus for one that does not see eating in fungi exceptionally but is also very difficult to determine down to species range.

So you actually scoped this specimen? I imagine there are lots of different things that could leave such an indistinct white film on a piece of wood. Could be bacterial even.
