Observation 14816: Xylocoremium flabelliforme (Schw.: Fr.) J.D. Rogers

This unusual shaped fungi was found on a decaying log in a very wet and often damp area of the mountain side. It was rather tiny about half an inch tall and was rather woody in texture. As it was raining at the time and I was doing battle with some very large leeches so I decided to call it a day. The light was dismal and I was having trouble getting any detail in my images. All exposures were taken without flash and the colours are very close to natural.


Thanks Shua, I had no idea what the specimen was. Have updated. KK

Recognized by sight: compare with flabelliforme… a very interesting Xylaria anamorph that I have found once and never would have identified unless someone had posted the other observation!
