1.One of my books has a fungus 'Sarcoscypha coccinea' that looks very
similar to orange peel fungus 'Aleuria aurantia' and grows on woody
debris (this is a UK and northern Europe book).
2.Rotting wood is very like soil (no doubt you have seen moss growing
on a dead log).
3.Fungi can't read :-) and occasionally don't follow the books.
