Location: Austria, Vienna Ottakringer Wald Date: Feb 8
I found something beneath a tree with epiphyta , which I thought to be Viscum album but is vividly yellow instead of white and I found no leaves.
My search of subspecies of Viscum album initially revealed:
Viscum album subsp. austriacum (Wiesb.) Vollmann. Fruit yellow; leaves 2–4 centimetres (0.79–1.57 in). Central Europe. On Larix, Pinus, Picea.
But then I began to think it shouldn’t be V. album. In illustrations of V. album there aren't the thin stalks between berries and branches as in my specimen.
Perhaps Loranthus europaeus?
