Common Name=(none) Family=Vibrisseaceae Genus/Species=Chlorovibrissea melanochlora (G.W. Beaton & Weste) L.M. Kohn 1989 Abundance &
Distribution=Rare Habitat=Found in gullies of wet forests. Substrate=On very old logs, probably mostly Eucalyptus. Description&
Observations=These produce thin, finely textured stalks around 20mm high with a relatively large, deformed, spherical head around 5mm in diameter. The enrie fruiting body is an olive-green color with the sporiferous head often being slightly paler, particularly as the fungus matures. They form dense patches and the whole colony can stretch for metres along a log. I have found this species only once (along Sassafras Creek in the Dandenongs) where it was growing on a disintegrating log under soft tree-fern {Dicksonia antarctica}. Links= Rating=
