Hi, here I am writing again about another strange fungus growing on the bark of a dead tree that I suspect is Ficus carica. First seen, it looks like a dry coral mushroom with a pale beige-ink color. It grows in tufts and then it apparently blackens out. Under the microscope, it turned out to be a synematous microfungus composed of sterile structural core of thick entangled hyphae, mustard-brown to curry-brown in color but dull. This becomes black in KOH. The outer layer is a thick dense coat of penicillate hyphae, with branches arranged in whorls and each subbranch seems to have a small head of phialides each producing one conidiospore. Conidiosore bean-shaped. This layer is pale mauve (almost greyish) and turns dirty green in KOH. The conidiospores are cream-straw color and become mauve-pink in KOH.
any clues please?
