« Tarspot Fungus | Main | Vulture »


What I think is common mazegill fungus, Datronia mollis, growing on what I think might be hazel (Corylus avellana) [Note added 2013-01-25: I went up there again today and it looks more like beech (Fagus sp)].

I took a sample but it didn't yield any spores (probably too old and dried out), however it did enable me to determine that there were about 2 pores per mm.

First photo taken in the Wilderness, Whiteknights Park, Reading, UK, on 2013-01-13.
