Observation 79471: Protubera maracuja Möller
When: 2011-10-08

Notes: We ate these. Some people liked them a lot, I thought they were average. Not that much flavor and odd texture.

They were growing prolifically from wood, we found them in two places so far.

Protubera maracuja

I think it might correspond to Protubera maracuja, which is a neotropical and subtropical species.
It is a very interesting record, because so far P. maracuja is known from Brazil, Suriname, Jamaica and Costa Rica.
To confirm the identification you need to check the peridium on the microscope…
