Some new Fungi in Troserch Woods.

Not so busy at the moment in the woods now that winter is upon us, but still a few new species to add to our list. The first was very rubbery and slimy, and quite a lot were growing on a fallen Oak tree alongside the Morlais river. Would seem to have all the hallmarks of an Olive Oysterling (Sarcomyxa serotina).


We also had a white jelly-type fungus growing on an old hazel branch, which looks like it could be White Brain Fugus (Exidia thuretiana). There were other jelly-type fungi about including Ascocoryne and Auricularia and a rather aggressive orange slime mould, which seemed to be devouring a bracket fungus.
