Terrestrial telephony (Thelefora terrestris)

Fruit body: The fruit body of the Telephora consists of shell-shaped, fan-shaped or rosette-shaped lobed caps, which grow together radially or in rows. The caps often form large irregular structures. Sometimes they are resupinant or prostrate-bent. The diameter of the cap is up to six centimeters. Growing together – up to 12 centimeters in diameter. At the narrowed base, the caps rise slightly, fibrous, pubescent, scaly or furrowed. Soft, concentrically zoned. Changes in color from reddish brown to dark brown. With age, the caps turn black, sometimes purple or dark red. At the edges, the cap retains a grayish or whitish color. Smooth and straight edges, later carved and grooved. Often with small fan-shaped outgrowths. On the underside of the cap there is a hymenium, radially ribbed, warty, sometimes smooth. Hymenium is chocolate brown or reddish amber in color.

Cap: The flesh of the cap is approximately three millimeters thick, fibrous, flaky-leathery, of the same color as hymenium. It is characterized by a light earthy odor and a mild taste.

Spores: purple-brown, angular-ellipsoidal, covered with blunt spines or tuberous.

Distribution: Telefora Terrestrial, refers to saprotrophs growing on the soil and symbitrophs that form mycorrhiza with coniferous trees. It is found on sandy dry soils, in felling areas and in forest nurseries. Despite the fact that the fungus is not a parasite, it can lead to the death of plants, enveloping the seedlings of pine and other species. Such damage, foresters call suffocation of seedlings. Fruiting from July to November. A common species in forest areas.

Edible: not consumed.

Similarity: Terrestrial Telefora, reminiscent of Clove Telefora, which is also not used for food. The Clove Telephon is characterized by a goblet shape of small fruiting bodies, a central stalk and deeply dissected edges.

Note: The fruiting body of the fungus is formed next to the seedling of a pine or any other tree. At the same time, it can envelop the seedlings, which leads to their death. But, this fungus is not considered a parasite, since seedlings serve as props for it. However, this fungus can cause serious damage in forest nurseries. If the fungus does not find a suitable support, it forms fruiting bodies on the underside of dead branches or on small stones.
