New Dutch fungus species

Ophiostoma polyporicola

A very small fungus species has been discovered for the first time ever in the Netherlands.

On Wednesday 21 December 2011, the Dutch Mycological Society reported:

Ophiostoma polyporicola, as the little fungus is called, was found in the royal estate near Gortel (Gelderland) on an old fruit body of a [bigger] Oligoporus stipticus fungus. This big fungus was speckled all over with quite small, jet-black fruit bodies of the small fungus which is about one millimeter in size.
