Hooghly – Fuligo sp. ??? : Attachments (11). 3 posts by 2 authors.

This one was growing on a dead log, recorded on 12/8/13.

My field guide doesn’t feature anything like this and i do not have any clue.


I don’t think this is a species of Fuligo, because I don’t find any characteristics of Myxomycetes (slime mould) in your images. Rather I would suggest BasidiomycetesAnastomosing honeycomb gills and your observation date reminds me of Serpula spp. I think this is Serpula similis (Syn: Merulius similis), usually seen on dead deciduous logs during the monsoon in Bengal.


Thank you very much … for id, for detail.
My guess was wild, without any base.
