First hello to everyone on this forum, I hope to learn and eventually contribute to this section. Learning is needed at this point.
Could anyone help identifying this fungus that started growing in my house when it was unoccupied for a few weeks? The house was damp before the recent weather, and there has been mushroom trouble before. It seems to spread throught the walls and its spores were found quite a large distance from the actual fungus, anywhere on the ground floor where the doors had not been closed. (Very annoying.)
The spores are orange, as you'd guess from the fungus, it is very floppy when removed and the specimen shown here was over 30cm on the straight sides. The shape is because it has been growing in a corner under a shelf. When disturbed there was a distinct smell of mushroom, stronger than the standard cultivated mushroom. On one of the pictures you can see a few lines of moisture running around the fungus.
Any help with this would be appreciated. It's interesting and I'd like to know what it is, although I don't want to share my house with it!
Personally I think it looks a bit like a slice of pizza with red tomato and a white crust...
