The Fungi World (414) : Porcelain Fungus

The porcelain fungus is a white, slimy wood-rot fungus and is strongly tied to rotting beech on which it grows.

It got its name by the layer of transparent mucus that covers the cap and so imitates porcelain.

Dutch name : Porseleinzwam
German name : Buchen Schleimrübling (auch Beringte Schleimrübling genannt)
Latin name : Oudemansiella mucida
