attacked/parasited fruitingbodies

host/victim: trichia sp.


i haven't seen that before, in an area of 5 m did i found at least 2 species covered/attacked by a third. On trichia varia were some patches with something looking like crystals, same on the little black pearl-patches. I'm happy when i get sometimes good shoots of the fruitingbodies,but the crystal were to small for my camera. sadly some picture were to bad.!!
