Our Tuesday Walk around the NBGW.

Possibly Antrodia xanthia?


A grey, cold, misty day but thankfully not raining. Firstly had a stop at the play area by the stable block. The pine logs around the play area are covered with a white fungus that seems to drip down like candle-wax. It has been there for a while but took a few photos today to check it out. Has a rather unusual form, which from pictures in various books points towards Antrodia xanthia perhaps?


Prettiest fungus of the day must go to the orange Tremella mesenterica(/aurantia?) which on a dull, grey day stood out like a beacon on the branch of a recently fallen beech tree.

Further along at the copse on top of Waun Las there was also a small patch of green staining on an old tree stump, indicating the presence of Green Elf Cup (Chlorociboria aeruginascens) but alas no little cups.
