Xylobolus frustulatus – Ceramic Parchment

Synonyms: Auricularia frustulata, Stereum frustulatum, Stereum frustulosum, Thelephora frustulata, Thelephora frustulosa, Thelephora sinuans, Xerocarpus frustulatus, Xerocarpus frustulosus, Xylobolus frustulosus.

Common name: Ceramic Parchment.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Xylobolus frustulatus, commonly known as the ceramic fungus or ceramic parchment, is an inedible species of crust fungus in the Stereaceae family. The fruit body forms small, hard, flat crust-like aggregations that resemble broken pieces of ceramic tile. These pieces are initially whitish before turning yellow-brown to gray-brown in age. The spore-bearing cells cover the upper surfaces of the fruit body. A saprobic species, it grows on well-decayed oak wood in Asia, northern Europe, and North America.

Lithuanian: Kurapkinis storplutis, Polish: Drewnowiec popękany, Russian: Ксилоболюс панцирный, Swedish: Rutskinn.
