Observation 8511: Asterophora lycoperdoides (Bull.) Ditmar

When: 2008-07-27

Collection location: Wildcat Hollow, Wayne National Forest, Ohio, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dan Molter (shroomydan)

No specimen available

These small parasitic mushrooms were growing from the mummified fruit-body of some other kind of mushroom. I could not see any gills, so I suspect they are boletes.

I have seen parasitic boletes growing from puffballs before, but never from an agaric. The general shape of the host suggests Russula or Lactarius.
