p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Fungus Stilbella byssiseda Parasitic on Slime Mould Metatrichia floriformis


Our local fungus recording group was surveying a wood where conifer trunks laid on the ground were well-rotted. One of these had this relationship which we had not seen before.

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f11, triple flash hand-held. (Studio session).

The FOV in the images is 7mm wide or less.

The stereos are crosseye and conventional.

Thanks, Birdie.

I understand that Stilbella might be a better name to use so I have modified the title.

Yes, very interesting! I've never seen anything like that. But then, they are small!

Thanks. Mostly, these are not things likely to be spotted casually. You have to get down and search.

The symbiosis is strong here! Seriously I wish we had a like-minded group to do this with. I took a course in Lichens and have always been fascinated with the little ones.

Association, maybe or strongly invasive. However, the fungus usually grows on herbivore dung.

See there? If I had a like-minded group to 'associate' with I would have known this.

The British Mycological Society has a network of groups in the UK. You may have the equivalent. Facebook has such groups.

By the way, I looked up that fungus lifestyle information.

I have hundreds of post here of fungi and slime moulds, with many stereos.

A clarification: this is Stilbella byssiseda which is a parasite of slime moulds, other species inhabiting dung. I have modified the title.
