Observation 48792: “Deuteromycota” R.T. Moore

When: 2010-07-17

Collection location: Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

No idea on this one. Substrate was an egg shaped mass of old rotted wood… or maybe an old nut… or maybe an old pine cone. Sustrate crumbled fairly easily and seemed like compacted sawdust inside. Fungus consists of very delicate white spines, up to about 1 cm long.

may have IDed the substrate. The area where this was found has black bears. Found very little info about Deflexula… but the link includes a photo of Deflexula fascicularis that looks a lot like the stuff seen in this obs.
