    They look a lot like Rhodactis, certainly not very typical R. Florida or R. Yuma

    They look like ones I have. These were sold to me as Ricordea, but at the price I paid for them they could not have been (R300 odd for a rock with over ten on)

    When I bought them I just thought they were green hairy mushrooms (i.e. Rhodactis) and that is what I still think mine are (and your look a lot like that too).

    Retailer will often try to “glamorise” names of corals to facilitate the sale. Any mushrooms that have the slightest bumps on them are quickly and wrongly labelled Ricordea.

    Mille, so what's your opinion on Psycho's picture - Ricordea or Rhodactis?

    Sorry Psycho wasn’t meaning that your corallimorphs are not nice. They certainly are.
    Generally Ricordea sell for more as they are more in demand because of some of them having amazing colours and patterns, especially Ricordea florida although some Ricordea yama are just as striking. There are some Rhodactis species that are also right up there with Ricordea in demand. R. inchoate for example, which are the “Bulls-eye” range of mushrooms.

    Can one frag Rhodactis like one can do for Discosoma?

    I have a rock full of some that are a lovely fluorescent green, and would like to try get some more. I find they do not spread as easily naturally as the Discosoam mushrooms, although I have got the odd one or two that seemed to have sprouted up a long way away from the mother rock.

    I tried fragging them by cutting up with a Minora blade but wasn't succesful, they frags just seemed to melt away to nothing after a day or so. Really seemed more like slime that actual pieces with any substance to them
