Please help!

Can anyone provide an official Latin name and a lay English name for the so-called "chainiy grib" popular in Russia, China and Japan - I'm translating a Russian book on folk medicine.

THANKS FOR YOU HELP!!!

Explanation:
In Latin, it's Medusomyces Gisevii. It also has scores of other names - the Russians also refer to it as Japanese fungus, tea kvass; in America it can be purchased under the name Kombucha.

A late answer; hope it was of some help!
