Orange fibrous substance reminiscent of that produced in extracting palm oil from the palm nut. Found on the bottom of a log used as a perimeter for our Forest School area.
In the next door log a white paint like mould was evident.

This might be the ozoneum

This might be the ozoneum from Coprinus domesticus although I have never seen as much as this before.

I looked up ozonium on Google

I looked up ozonium on Google images there are many similar images. Thanks for this. It's called an imperfect fungi whatever that means. I thought i recognised coprinus domesticus name. I'll keep an eye out later in the year for the host. Maybe I should take a sample for microscope analysis. Curious to know why it's called ozonium? See if I can find out more.
