NT1977 : Honey fungus rhizomorphs

taken 5 years ago, near to Cramond, Edinburgh, Great Britain

Honey fungus rhizomorphs
Honey fungus rhizomorphs
The black threads typical of Armillaria [honey fungi] that conduct nutrients from within the tree stump, where the fungus mycelium is digesting the wood, to the point where the fruit bodies are being formed - they run between the bark and wood, and are seen when the bark falls off as the stump decays. [rhizo = root; morph = shape or form - so root-like]. For the whole fungus see NT1977 : Fungi on a Sycamore stump.
