Observation 200196: Leucocoprinus Pat.
When: 2015-03-05
0 Sequences

Have previously photographed this species in this tree trunk before. Light is very limited and images difficult to produce without noise and distortion. Also see previous MO Obs 198979.
Fungi is growing on desdwood. Cap is warty on top and white. Stipe is yellow and covered in warts to the base. Base expands in two stages and also has warts featured prominently. Some meal droppings from the outer perimeter of the cap were evident. Gills fine and white.
I believe the initial stages of growth start of with the fungi being fully yellow. Then it becomes fully white followed by the final stages as shown with Yellow stipe and white cap. Also see MO Obs 198979 where the ID suggested is :
Leucocoprinus cretaceus.

Recognized by sight: sure looks like heaps of fluffy globose cells on top of that cap.
