Description

In light of the problems identifying this (here's the original observation), I returned this afternoon and photographed this fungus (in the rain!). Tried to get details of the underneath; hope these are adequate.

Had a good look around but this was the only specimen I could find.

Description

On fallen, rotting branch next to track. Mycetophilid flies associated with this (one clearly visible in first photograph; eggs also visible, and I suspect these are those of these flies, although I didn't see any oviposition).

See this observation for more detailed views.

It is a genus used for the production of single cell proteins, sources of mixed protein extracted from pure or mixed cultures of algae, yeasts, fungi or bacteria (grown on agricultural wastes) used as a substitute for protein-rich foods, in human and animal feeds.
