When: 2008-07-12

Collection location: Lago Agrio, Sucumbíos, Ecuador [Click for map]

Who: Danny Newman (myxomop)

No specimen available

Notes:
CLASS A

Specimens were situated beneath test crates containing varying mixtures of Pleurotus spawn, substrate and crude oil (see http://mushroomobserver.org/58581). Some of the more oil-saturated crates would drip onto the mulch bed below, bringing these bird’s nest fungi into direct contact with liquid contaminant.

Collected for the Amazon Mycorenewal Project.

C. striatus is a likely match. no flash, all natural light. just happened to be a sunny day.

edit 11/26/2012: C. striatus may or may not be strictly temperate. C. limbatus is a possibility.

They are very similar. The inside of the cup has a metallic reflectivity to it, but could be the result of a flash camera. The progression towards maturity looks identical.
