Range & Status
Very localised in Britain.
Discovered in Boconnoc and Lanhydrock Parks in 2004.
Habitat & Ecology
Develops in aerial dead branches in the lower canopy of open-grown Oak Quercus spp. trees.
Dead-wooding of parkland trees; removal of lower branches to improve access; failure to establish new generations of open-grown trees.
Boconnoc Park is a SSSI, while Lanhydrock Park is owned by The National Trust.
