Ceramic Parchment

Xylobolus frustulatus


This fungus made the log look like it was wearing dentures. Ceramic Parchment is a saprobic fungus, which I spotted growing densely and gregariously on a rotting log in patches of adjacent frustules. The individual fruiting bodies were irregularly shaped, resupinate, and were approximately 3-6mm in size.


Growing on rotting wood in a deciduous forest.
