Oudemansiella mucida #3

Oudemansiella mucida (NL: Porseleinzwam / EN: Porcelain Fungus / DE: Buchen-Schleimrübling, Beringte Schleimrübling / FR: Mucidule visqueuse) is a fungus in the Physalacriaceae family. The species is specific to beech wood. It appears in autumn on dead trunks and on fallen branches, and occasionally it also grows on living trees. The cap is 2 to 8 cm in diameter, semi-transparent and white. The adnate, broad and very distand gills show through the thin cap flesh, giving the margin a striate appearance. A mucous slime covers the cap during wet weather. The stipe is Slender, with a substantial stem ring, usually 3 to 7 mm in diameter, up to 8 cm long, and often curved so as to bring the cap to the horizontal in situations where large tufts of Porcelain Mushrooms are attached to a small area of the host.
A few days after the shots I posted previously, I found an other group of this species. I waited for about half an hour for the sun to lit this group... after 2 minutes the sun was gone again ... but I made my image !
