Crimped Gill

Plicaturopsis crispa


Clusters of fruitbodies, growing in a cluster on a decaying log. The biggest fruitbody was about 8cm across, smallest ones hardly pointing out.


Seen growing in clusters on a log of fallen tree, on shores of a small lake of lowland mixed forest. The forest in question is a protected marshy area of Prodon, Geneva lake valley.


Many thanks to Flowntheloop for pointing the right direction in regards of ID .

No problem at all! They are still beautiful though!

This is not Laetiporus. Try Crimped Gill (Plicaturopsis crispa)
