A white mushroom
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
ecology and location
I have encountered this mushroom on an old stump of oil palm tree in decay. It was in DRC, in the equatorial part of the country.
As you can see, it is a medium size mushroom (cap of around 5 to 8 centimetres of diametre). This mushroom is never alone but grouped in colony of numerous specimens, as you can see it on the picture.
The cap is depressed and white with brown concentric lines. The margin of the caps are irregularly scalloped when the mushroom becomes mature.
As often, I don't have any idea on its name: if anybody could help me he will be very welcome. Thank you in advance in the name all the members of treknature.
The picture was taken in the morning when the sky was overcast. With a sensitivity equivalent to ISO-200 and an apperture of f/8, the speed was 1/320.
Recropping and resizing ; improvement of the gamma and the sharpness with Olympus studio.

Very nice picture with a very good ligh, sharpnes and point of view. Good textures too. Congratulation.
This one seems Lentinus tigrinus, very common in Central and Southern Europe, mostly on riversides, on Salix, Populus or Rosaceae, but other hosts are possible, too. Very photogenic, suggestive species. Here's my pic about this species taken in Hungary.
Kind regards, László
