The pictures show the galls that Austrobasidium pehueldeni cause on Hydrangea serratifolia stems
Sorry for my english
Alas, drying fungi is beyond my meager means on this hybrid bicycling-hiking tour of Patagonia. Let me assure people that at 20x under a hand lens I could clearly see perithecia lining the surface. I would say definitely not insect or plant. The fragrance, moreover, was clearly fungal.
looks like an excellant candidate for a stint under the microscope…somehow doesn’t really seem fungal to me, either…
The structure reminds more of plant tissue (inside like the flesh in fruits) than of fungi. Could it be insect galls?
Podostroma alutacea though I can’t say the lovely fragrance is typical… Very well may be other species in Chile!
