Gloeophyllum Sepiarium

Monday Mushroom #18

Gloeophyllum sepiarium! What a wonderful name. This is one of the most abundant mushrooms in clear-felled areas of forestry plantations - it plays its part in rotting down stumps and large chunks of timber left behind after the trees have been harvested.

This one is cheekily having a go at decomposing a fencepost! <3

They have similarly labyrinthine gills to the maze-gill fungus, but on a smaller scale. 

Fresh fruiting bodies are felty.

Old fruiting bodies are papery.
