In the year 2000 I posted an image on wikipedia of a growth that I found on a Ryparosa javanica hoping to get it identified.
Seven years older, but no wiser, I thought it worth giving it another shot.
I think it’s part of the growth of the tree. The stem looks similar, but it is not the normal fruiting body and with hundreds of trees to look at daily, I have not seen it again.
I am asking Neil, most humbly, if he will post my image on the blog, since I remain unempowered in the blogging process.
