Oudemansiella mucida Marasmiaceae Porcelain Fungus

Oudemansiella mucida 11kb

Oudemansiella mucida Porcelain Fungus. This fungus grows in tufts on trees, and is particular fond of Beech trees. The caps measure 2-8cm in diameter and are white and very shiny. In wet weather they are covered in a translucent mucilage. Underneath, the gills are widely spaced, with sort intermediate gills apparent. The stipes have an obvious ring toward the apex. It is not very common in Guernsey, probably because Beeches are uncommon, but has been found on other trees. It is not edible.
