These fungi were growing on a log that had fallen on the side of the hill. The gills showing in the image is by hand of man.(I put it there to help in ID) I have tried to make it look as normal as possible. I cant find anything in my references like these either, but then I dont have the knowledge to make an id if my image is younger or older than the reference image.

I did find a reference that was similar except for the centre brown colouring of the cap. This was Crepidotus nephrodes. :—

Caps to 65 mm broad and 45 mm radius attached by a short lateral stem, mostly flat at maturity but sometimes distorted by crowding. Caps occur singly or sometimes in small clumpsand are very watery and brittle when mature. Common on decaying logs and branches. Spores c. 7.5 × 7 micro m, globose, minutely spiny. Spore print brown.

Thanks for the ID This was an old loading that had gone on without an ID. I have been updating all my listings after the site updates. Hope to load some new images soon. Nathan has really been busy.
Chow, kk.
PS nice to be in contact, it’s been a while.


I dont know what I have done here with the type page? It decided to do a stretch. I did try redooing the "edit " bit to no avail. (KK)
