Wow that is pretty wild.
Here is the translated article for all to read:I did it through google so is not the greatest.http://www.aftenpost...icle4246472.ece
The fungus blew through five inches of asphalt.
This fungus folds up like an umbrella, disintegrate and turn into ink-like fluid in the end.
A little cool in the garage floor was half a meter with mushrooms in three days. The fungus blew through two inches of asphalt in the garage for Åge Reppe in Stord, Hordaland.
- There was a bump on the asphalt in my carport for a year. When I built the walls on the carport, were the fungus as a shot, says Reppe to Adressa.no
The ink-like liquid
Associate Professor of Botany at University College of Nord-Trøndelag (HiNT), Håkon Holien, concludes that this is a matblekksopp.
- It can not be any doubt that this is a matblekksopp. This fungus is growing fast. When it has come up through the asphalt, fold it up like an umbrella, then goes in solution. It is an ink-like fluid in the end, hence the name, says Holien
In this way spreading matblekksoppen their tracks, and then it has done its job.
The water pressure in the cells of the fungus that allows it manages to break through the asphalt. Once the fungus has spread its spores, dissolve the surface. The fungus lives in the ground as long as there is food, and may well come back next year in the same hole.
- Fantastic image
Matblekksoppen is a good mushrooms, but can only be used if it is white all the way through.
- The fungus in the picture starts to get dark, and when it should not be used. When will it taste bad, says Holien.
He adds that matblekksoppen often shows up on roadsides and places that basically are not appropriate places to get food from.
The fungus is not a rare sight, but Holien says that there are reported many cases of a matblekksopp which has penetrated through the asphalt.
- It's a great image, he concludes.
