The “ozonium” is the mycelium of this species. I think the name ozonium was coined before the fruiting body was recognized. This orange fuzz typically is quite visible on the surface of broadleaf logs. If memory serves there is a Peck species which (if different) also has the same fuzz. Coprinus laniger.

That was my gut instinct…

But I didn’t trust it!

Cool.

Thank you. But what is this stuff? I found tern “Ozonium”, but didn’t understand the purpose of this.

Human-made?

Just kidding. It was in the depths of the really wild area. The substance did feel like one of those things to scrub your frying pan, though. I don’t know if it is fungal or not.
