Fungi Philip Marshall2020-08-02T08:27:10+01:00July 18th, 2020|1 Comment I saw these fungi in the Tod Park woods. I think the bracket fungi is Dryads Saddle and it occurred on this Sycamore a couple of years ago. The other is Dogs Vomit fungi which I have not come across in the wood before. One Comment Peachysteve July 19, 2020 at 8:35 am - Reply I think you are right about the bracket which has a distinctive upper surface which we can’t see here. There is some confusion over the common name of the slime mold. I believe that this one, Fuligo septica, is properly called “Flowers of Tan” named so because it was often found growing on the oak bark waste which had been used in the tanning process. However in the States it is referred to as Dog’s Vomit Slime Mold and as they rule the internet that name is often applied in the UK too. We have another slime mold, Mucilago crustacea, which is often found in grassland as a white or beige mass. This has the UK common name Dog’s Vomit or Dog Sick Slime Mold.
