Code: Bot_392/2009-6449


Habitat: Light mixed wood, partly cut down, almost solely Picea abies and Fagus sylvatica, calcareous ground, in half shade, mostly exposed to direct rain, average precipitations ~3.000 mm/year, average temperature 6-8 deg C, elevation 820 m (2.700 feet), alpine phytogeographical region.


Substratum: An only slightly rotten stump of a cut down Fagus sylvatica.


Place: Zadnjica valley, lower Stružnik place, East Julian Alps, Posočje, Slovenia EC.


Comments: Photographed in a half dry state. Two dry-air and windy days before I took these pictures these specimens were still moist, much more swollen and almost purely light violet color - an astonishing different color to these pictures. Apparently partly in conidial form.
