Observation 45050: Fungi Bartl.

I found this fungi at the base of a large recently fallen tree. At first I thought it was a coral fungi, but I feel now after carefully looking at it that is is not a coral fungi. There are also droplets of moisture to be seen at different spots on the growth. I did not disturb the fungi, but I also believe that it was much larger than was showing. The main part of the fungi was about 10-15mm in height.

I admire your eagerness to ID your unidentified observations, but there are some cases in which there is simply too little info to take anything more than whimsical shots in the dark. What you have here is too nondescript (likely due to immaturity) to say much of anything, other than it probably being fungal.


Will leave on site. Chow, kk

the lack of a sure ID is no cause at all for removal. by all means, leave it here. i promise your observations are valued, sure identities or none.


I thought that it might be mycelium by the mass, bit it seemed too big/thick? Also not sure how much was existing as it was beneath a very big fallen tree.. Think you are probably correct so will leave it for a while before removing from the site. kk

could be immature, could be nothing more than mycelium.

Comment appreciated

This fungi has evaded me from identification. As stated it was found on the underside of a large recently fallen tree. The fungi appeared to be in several different stages of maturity. It also appeared to be extending well back into the tree root system. The tree was far to large to move and was in a precarious position. The image is available in high resolution. There also appears to be an orange egg satchel or small insect attached to the fungi.
