Observation 49063: Thelephora Ehrh. ex Willd.

When: 2010-07-22

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Another clump of these thelephoroid fruiting bodies, this time in D9C, growing up out of the ground to a height of a cm or two.

D9 is shaping up to be the new Mile, with Amanita, Russula, Boletus, these guys, chanterelles, and other fungi all on one day and with its similar damp habitat and tree mix including mature and elderly Populus tremuloides. (D6B also has mature P. tremuloides, as does Zone 45. Zones 11 and 12 (the Mile and the Pit) had them too but have been destroyed.)

for Thelephora shouldn’t be gelatinous, no. Texture for Tremella and relatives should be.
