Black bulgar fungus, a licorice lookalike





I found these fine specimens of black bulgar fungus Bulgaria inquinans growing on a fallen branch of oak in Backstone bank wood near Wolsingham in Weardale.

















It's a strange fungus, looking like flattened lumps of licorice, up to five centimetres in diameter, with a rubbery texture
