“Fusicolla merismoides (family Nectriaceae) is often considered the definitive tree slime fungus. This appears to be a large complex of many phylogenetic species. Almost every strain barcoded to date has a different sequence.”

“After a lot of culturing in Petri plates, we determined that a number of fungal species (Fusarium acuminatum, Fusarium merisomoides, Epicoccum nigrum and Aureobasidium spp.) and a yeast were present in most of the samples.”
