coral spot

Pin-head sized domes of coral-coloured material surrounding a pruning wound on my Walnut (Juglans sp.). Not a good sign I think...


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

Coral Spot

Yep, growing on a Walnut branch - more spots around another pruning wound on a larger branch too. Strange since I've read that Coral Spot is associated with poorly/dying trees, and this one is quite vigourous, young and apparently otherwise healthy.
