Crepidotus variabilis

Crepidotus variabilis (NL: Wit oorzwammetje / EN: Variable Oysterling / DE: Gemeines Stummelfüsschen / FR: Crépidote variable) Crepidotus variabilis is a tiny, kidney-shaped fungus that appears on dead twigs of broad-leaved trees in autumn and winter. The attachment is virtually always sessile (having no stem). Many authorities give this genus family status as Crepidotaceae, while others include the genus Crepidotus within the family Inocybaceae; this should be a warning that these little fungi are not for eating, as some Inocybe species are deadly poisonous.
