As in a previous case, for the purpose of fungus identification I need to identify its host. Is it possible to identify the shrubs in the photos attached? The habitat are the sand dunes close to the sea at the interface of the sand and soil.
Thanks in advance,

Maybe Myoporum laetum?

Hi sooby,
Thanks for your reply and your proposal. I looked into my photos again and saw that some flowers can be seen on the first photo (specimen on the left, upper part), which are very similar to those of the species you propose. The other photo also have some flowers on the upper left hand side.
Those photos were taken by the end of April last year, which corresponds to the fertile period of the plant.
Regards,
zaca

@zaca It was the flowers in your pictures that made me think of it, we used to visit Portugal regularly and the place we usually stayed had a hedge of Myoporum which looked very similar to your plant.

Hi sooby,
Thanks again. I was looking for more information and found a blog where some information about M. laetum is given, including a distribution map in Portugal, which includes the zone where the photos were taken:

I think that you reached its name.
I hope you will continuing to visit us and observe our natural beauties.
Best regards,
zaca
