I also found Coprinus domesticus at Kuo.

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!

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

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.
