On living and dead deciduous trees, always on, or inside, the main trunk, favouring beech, with confirmed records on hornbeam and oak
Should not be collected due to rarity
The specimen shown was growing inside a rotten fallen beech tree. It was shown to me by the Hampshire Fungus Recording Group. A specimen was present inside the same tree in October 2020. This fungus is cultivated for food.
