Observation 7940: Fungi Bartl.
When: 2007-05-03
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This photo was inspired by contact with Clive Shirley (NZ Hidden Forest) At least you can blame him. After seeing some of his very interesting images I found this one on either dead wood or some unknown droppings.{Scats}
(I had previously photographed a mycena being eaten by another fungi called Spinellis.) I will post the image when I reach it. This image (fungi) was very small, about 1cm in height, and very fragile. Apparently the fungi that forms on animal droppings is again another family. This is to acknowledge Clive and his unending help he has given me without loosing his patience or sanity. To you Clive this is my first of a kind. I hope it will be enjoyed.

Looks similar but bunched at the base more on Alan’s. Clive Shirley “Forest Fungi” New Zealand thought it was fungi on animal droppings. Over to you?

comment on droppings.

I would lean toward animal scat as it was isolated from any deadwood after re-reading my notes. Thanks for the comments. kk

Tremellodendron, Tremellodendropsis. The difference between dead wood and animal droppings could be highly diagnostic.
