Observation 204767: Coprinellus domesticus (Bolton) Vilgalys, Hopple & Johnson
When: 2015-05-20
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I’m not sure what’s going on here. Are the apparent two organisms one and the same? Separate? Parasitism?

In any case, this, er, complex was growing from a downed limb, possibly from a magnolia.

… I was aware of that. I’ve just never seen the mycelium massed up and exteriorized like this. That’s why I thought I might be dealing with two different fungi.

Thank you, though. A striking organism.
