on huge decaying logs and stumps of Fagus sylvatica (common European beech), more seldom on a variety of oaks and other hardwoods preferably in pristine habitats.
BTW, they yield a medicine I think against cancer or so. But I’m not sure about the ingredients. And they are very mucuous or slimy. It is hard work to get them dry. It happened once to me that they became mouldy after regaining water in my herbarium bag! You need to dry them really carefully and very long.

Cool shrooms!

What were these slimy little guys growing from? Nice veil shot!
