Observation 52062: Daldinia Ces. & De Not.

When: 2010-09-05

Collection location: Beaver Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Bob Zuberbuhler (Bob Z)

No specimen available

Several small, 1/2 to 1" roughly spherical mushooms were found on the cut end of a dead log. They were brown and had a thick, somewhat granular blackish base. They were very hard, had no visible gills or pores and the cut surface was black, and thick black fluid oozed from near the margin. I initially thought they might be immature Camarops petersii but they did not get larger and dessicated and fell off within a month.

“The D. concentrica group comprises the type species and several related taxa that are typically distributed in mild temperate and subtropical climates of western and southern Europe; some related taxa occur in tropical Africa and in the Southern Hemisphere. They have so far not been found in the Americas and the temperate regions of Asia, despite diligent search. All previous records of “D. concentrica“ from Asia and America obviously need to be revised.” http://www.studiesinmycology.org/...
