User's notes

Umbagong Fungi Project: They grew around / through sticks and leaves. See pale imprint of LHS cap where a leaf was pulled off. Sticks embedded all the way through. Heino's useful comments to help distinguish polypores from boletes: "These are likely to be aged specimens of Amauroderma rude. Boletes expand from the button stage by cell expansion. Basically there's an uptake of water and the cells expand, so an expanding bolete tends to push leaf litter aside (though litter may stick quite firmly to a bolete with a slimy cap and remain firmly attached when the slime dries. Amauroderma, like other polypores, grows by cell addition (not by cell expansion). When a growing polypore meets an obstacle (e.g. a stick) the cells continue to be added around the obstacle, so sticks and leaves can end up being firmly embedded. There is probably little nutrient intake since the feeding part of the fungus is in the soil or wood from which the visible structure arose."
