Wet bubble (Mycogone perniciosa)
This disease like dry bubble is soil-borne. Infested soil may be primary source of infection. Infection usually occurs at casing. The disease is spread within a house mainly by water splash, on clothing, equipment, flies or mites. Cross-contamination between houses can also take place. Young pin heads infected by Mycogone grow into shapeless lumps cauliflower-like which have a velvety appearance initially and eventually break down producing small amber droplets of liquid on the surface. It can also appear as gray fuzzy growth on gills (a series of radially arranged (from the center) flat surfaces located on the underside of the cap on which spores are formed).
