Observation 88632: Melanomma sanguinarium (P. Karsten) Sacc.

The red-staining is very striking. The fruitbodies are black but they were not fully ripe. The only fact that is against the ID is the growth on hornbeam. M. sanguinarium should occur on beech exclusively. But I do think this is not always forcing. With Corticiaceae there are few species that are really host specific. With pyrenomycetes it is surely more strict but “Übersteiger” may also occur I am convinced.
