Notes: Does anybody know some good net sources about Hypomyces? This is probably an anamorph. No perithecia observed. But because of my total lack of experience with Hypomyces I doubt in my determination in spite of the fact that observed characters fit quite well to the description in Ref.1.
Growing on pore surface of several fairly old Trametes versicolor fruitbodies. Whitish color mat over the host’s hymenophore, sometimes extending over several adjacent host’s fruitbodies; on the most dense places it looks almost as a thin white crust; host’s basidiomata with no apparent change (observed with a magnifier 15 x). Hyphae have spread from the host to a glass plate where I collected `spores` (under a plastic cover with a piece of wet tissue inside to keep humid environment). In 4 days and 6 hours it looked like a very delicate fan-like branching of hyphae about 2 cm (0.8 inch) radius. Telemorph and anamorph stages are reported as common in North America but rare in Europe (Ref.1.). So, my doubts are even stronger.
Habitat: Warm deciduous tree forest, predominantly Ostrya carpinifolia, Fraxinus ornus, Corylus avellana, flat terrain, calcareous ground, mostly in shade, partly protected from direct rain, average precipitation ~ 3.000 mm/year, average temperature 8-10 deg C, elevation 555 m (1.800 feet), alpine phytogeographical region.
Substratum: Trametes versicolor growing on a fallen, partly rotten Ostrya carpinifolia trunk.
Place: Bovec basin, near Poljanca place, east slopes of Mt. Kopa, 1.439 m (4.721 feet), East Julian Alps, Posočje, Slovenia EC.

Sorry Charles. I just tried all three links and all of them work properly with my PC.
I tried all of these but none seem to work.
Thank you Darv for the very informative source. The key based on anamorphs and the description (at least as far as the characters I am able to check are concerned) of the H. poliporinus fit well to my observation. For greater certainty it would be nice to get back and try to find teleomorph. But I read that a teleomorph has never been found yet in Europe.
