Observation 84033: Exidia recisa (Ditmar) Fr.

When: 2011-09-24

Collection location: Camp Sequanota, Somerset Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Martin Livezey (MLivezey)

No specimen available

Very thick, rubbery, smooth and lobed /branched. Brown-black appearance, color appears more vinaceous in the photos than I remember. I would say that 1 and 3 are the best representation of the series. But this was not spatulate, like E. recisa appears to be.

Hmmm looks pretty close

The color is more typical of Exidia recisa, but I don’t see any of the sharp edges usually present in that species. There appear to be fewer warts than I usually see on Exidia glandulosa, but some warts are visible.

The color does seem close to the pale specimen you linked to.

E. glandulosa because of the vinaceous color of the fruiting bodies and the less of gland papillules on the surface. What about E. recisa? I’ve found the species often on dead salix branches.
