Phaeohelotium (Discinella terrestris aggregate)

 

In general, Phaeohelotium fruit bodies grow from rotting wood. Phaeohelotium (Discinella terrestris aggregate) is a convenient name for a group of species that (1) appear to form mycorrhizas with eucalypts and (2) produce fruit bodies on soil. The fruiting bodies of those species consist of shallow cups atop short stems, the cups varying from a few millimetres to about a centimetre in diameter and the stems showing a similar range in length. The fruiting bodies are smooth and their colours range from yellow to brown, depending on species. In the past Discinella terrestris was the name given to many specimens of small, yellow, discoid to cup-like fruiting bodies found on soil. It has been found that (1) more than one species was hiding under that name, (2) the species could not be differentiated macroscopically, (3) the genus Discinella was inappropriate for them and (4) they belonged to a small close-knit group of species best placed in Phaeohelotium.
