Thanks for that Paul. You are on the ball spotting the fact that it has been parasitised. I have accidentally photographed other fungi some time ago that had been affected this way, and now I usually try to avoid putting them up if they have a host. I really misjudged on this one, but I will remember for the future. Is there a way to log these images for prosterity.? Chow, kk

it’s a mushroom parasitized by a Hypomyces?


It looked to be fully matured to me Irene. I do no have a single reference that is even close. The white top was an interesting addition. I scraped it just to make sure it wasnt bird droppings. Maybe we will get another proposal.

Could it be
