Rare fungi benefit from fire

Anthracobia melaloma

Translated from the Dutch Mycological Society:

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

In January, a few special fungi which benefit from burning were found on the remains of an illegal fire. These were Anthracobia melaloma and Plicaria anthracina. Both are on the Red List. It’s special enough to find them in the winter, because fires occur more during dry summers. Two months later it was the turn of the Plicaria endocarpoides mushroom to appear.
