Observation 200380: Fungi Bartl.

When: 2015-03-02

Collection location: Oceanside, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Jacob Kalichman (Pulk)

Specimen available

Spotted something funny driving by this planted tree. I don’t know what the tree is.

Reminds me strongly of Fusicolla, but not sure. The only 2 west coast obses here of Fusicolla so far are mine, in northern CA, obs 200078 and obs 190435. obs 187717 and obs 199765 are similar.

No smell or taste.

Interesting consistency: a small but essentially opaque blob can be squished between a coverslip and slide enough to be virtually invisible… then manages to creepily slip out between them immediately reforming the blob.

I do have a specimen… will “add” later today.

Not sure what’s going on here…
Are these air bubbles or structures?

the tree is a Tilia but something tells me I’m way off.
