Tubes up to 2 cm deep, deeply depressed around the stalk, uneven; white to flesh-colored then pinkish brown. Pores 1-2 per mm; white to pinkish brown. Stem 60-150 x 4-l0mm, long, solid, slender, often curved; same color as cap or paler cinnamon tan, white within, base white; longitudinally lined, with a bloom or finely granulose. Flesh white or tinged reddish near cuticle. Odor not distinctive. Taste mild. Spores ellipsoid, often punctate, 11-17 x 5-7?. Deposit dark reddish brown. Habitat singly or scattered on the ground in woods under aspen, oak, pine, and hemlock. Found in northeastern North America, south to Georgia. Season June-October. Edibility not known, possibly good, but to be experimented with extreem caution.
Asero? rubra A stinkhorn from New Zealand. The whole fruit body is pink, arising from an oval white ?egg? with the glebal disk showing dark, sticky, spore mass, the ?tentacles? are strong reddish colour grouped in pairs, normally up to as much as 10cm in height. This is a very very rare fungus, only one record found outside greenhouses in the whole of the northern hemisphere. Found on mixed woodland litter on acid soil. It is native to New Zealand and Australia and other areas in the southern hemisphere. Presumably it was imported on garden plants that had been introduced from the southern hemisphere.
Ascotremella faginea (Peck) Seaver B?kk?s t?ml?srezg?gomba, B?kk ?lrezg?gomba (rezg?gomba). A jelly like asco, fruit body crowded together with a very short stem, pink to violet, shiny when wet. Asci 8 spored, ascospores 7-9x4-4.5, with two drops and 3 or 4 strations (very difficult to see). Found on dead twigs of Alder and Beech. Europe and America. Not edible.
Apiognomonia veneta The fungus that attacks London Plane trees with its Discula anamorph. In spring Planes get a severe leaf drop as the fungus develops, it occurs when the new leaves are approaching full size and seems to affect around 5% of leaves. It attacks the petioles and leaf stems infecting up into the leaf veins. The trees then carry on seeming to be able to survive and continue to build foliage throughout the season. The oriental plane is more resistant, the American plane less resistant to this disease, the London Plane being a hybrid seems to fall somewhere in the middle. Not Edible. USA and Europe.
Antrodia sinuosa (Fr.) Karst. A creamy coloured rusipinate crust with rudimentary caps with exposed tubes, the leathery growth can be quite extensive, it can quite easily be detached from the substrate. Spores are smooth 6.5-9x3-4um. Found on dead spruce wood and occasionally on other conifers. It can be found at any time of year.
Antrodia serialis (FR.) Donk Szalagtapl? (tapl?). A rusupinate which forms patches on spruce wood that can be at least 20 cm. Across, tending to form mini tough leathery brackets. Where it turns up to make the little brackets it shows ochre-brown colours, the pore /under surface is white, pores 2-4 per mm. Found on dead conifer wood (mostly on spruce (Picea), at any time of the year. Not common. Spores 6.5-9x3-4um.
