Multiclavula mucida (Pers.) R.H. Petersen

One of three Czech basidiolichens, very hard to find and identify when sterile due to its mucous thallus. Fruiting bodies are formed in large quantities but only during autumn. The species is linked to soft decaying wood, typically of big lying trunks, and less often may grow also on stumps. It highly prefers old-growth forests, mainly beech ones, in central European conditions. It is a widespread but rather rare lichen of temperate and boreal forests in the northern hemisphere. In the Czech Republic, it occurs mainly in mountains and foothills. So far, the species has been reported from the Křivoklát region, the Šumava Mts, Český les Mts, Novohradské hory Mts and Beskydy Mts.
