Sap Omelette by Oniroid Sap Omelette by Oniroid
Cryptococcus macerans, A slimy omelette like formation on rising sap.
Our little yeast is called Cryptococcus macerans2, a basidiomycete yeast first discovered in Denmark, mostly found in sweet wild fluids in frigid parts of the globe such as Iceland and Patagonia and now from wherever it is I live. The orange pigment is of course carotene, the same chemical that colours carrots, and probably my fur. This is one of a group of yeasts that really don’t like each other yeasts very much. They slaughter each other with killer toxins called mycocins.
Finaly a name for this :) please read more here blog.mycology.cornell.edu/2010…

This was found in my local spring wood, It tends to only be around in the spring and is usually  on tree stumps that were cut a few month earlier.
What ever it is, it is using the rising sap of the tree as food.
