Coprophilous fungi – Wikipedia

The hardy spores of coprophilous species are unwittingly consumed by herbivores from vegetation, and are excreted along with the plant matter. Spores are biseriate, x Samples were rehydrated and fingi on 1 August on moist paper towelling in plastic boxes with lightly fitting transparent lids, under ambient light and at room temperature ca o C.


This is the commonest Coprinus species developing on dung worldwide when incubated in moist chambers, and is characterised by its bright white veil of globose cells and small x From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Krug Macroscopically similar to S. Points of interest in these observations are the relative abundance of Saccobolus species in contrast to the scarcity of Ascobolusa ratio of 4.

Coprophilous fungi from Brazil

The mean species richness of Samples were examined frequently, at intervals of a few days, with a x magnification stereomicroscope. Paraphyses with yellow contents. Details of the fungi found from the collection of samples are provided and discussed, together with some aspects of the diversity and species richness of the dung habitat in a small area of Brazil. Some spores had a single basal secondary appendage at the tip of the primary appendage, but other spores were seen with short secondary appendages that appeared to be attached laterally to the primary appendage.

Although not all coprophilous fungi produce mushrooms, there are many that do, particularly in the genera CoprinopsisPanaeolus and Deconica. Coprinus radiatus Bolton Fr.
