The Fungi World (278) : Dyer's Mazegill

Dyer’s Mazegill (also known as Velvet-top fungus) is a fungus that usually grows on bare tree roots of conifers in 2, 3 or 4 overlapping tiers.

It's a significant parasite, attacking the host tree through its roots and often killing him as a result of serious brown rot that it causes !
This fungal infection can mean a significant tree loss for a forest.
