Resupinatus trichotis - an Oysterling
This minute Oysterling was spotted by Barry on a fallen Beech in Limb Valley on 30/12/10. The caps are a few millimetres across, and ech one has an Affro-style hair-do. The spores are subglobular, 4-5 microns (scale in 10 um units). This is our first record of the species, which I identified using Bioimages and Courtecuisse and Duhem.. In addition we have 2 records of R. applicatus - Smoked Oysterling - which is attached by the top of the cap. The first is from Thurcroft in 1989, the second is from Limb Valley, Sept 2010 from John and Val of the Sorby NHS.
