Hebeloma vinosophyllum (Basidiomycota, Agaricales), a member of the ammonia fungi, occurred on the ground in the close vicinity of the decomposed carcass of a jungle crow,Corvus macrorhynchos, in a forest dominated byQuercus spp. in Urawa, Saitama Pref., central Japan. This is the first report of an ammonia fungus occurring at the site of a decomposed wild bird carcass.
