Observation 8188: Xerula Maire
When: 2008-05-02
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This beautifully coloured fungi was thriving on a moss covered very large and old fallen Iron bark. The area was as can be seen normally shaded and continually moist. The fungi was about 8cm in height and the cap about 5cm across. The cap also was viscid and I could not see any remnants of a veil or a volva. There are small pimples (for a better word) evident on the stem nearing the cap. The gill structure was forked , which is different to the usual small yellow fungi that are also in the area. I forgot to mention the unusual colouring of the top of the cap. The pale colour doesn’t seem to fit with the generally found yellow fungi.(Caps usually yellow on top)
