Observation 109126: Tremella foliacea Pers.
When: 2012-09-08
No herbarium specimen

Notes: fruiting on hardwood log in a creek bed

at first glance I thought it resembled a smooth version of Auricularia auricula-judae, but then thought it might be some sort of Tremella. Specimens of T. foliacea I’ve found in the past, though, are much finer, like thin lettuce. This is pretty thick and rubbery.

specimen has turned to a much darker shade of brown after being picked

spore print is white to cream

spores are elliptical to broadly elliptical, 5 -7 × 4 -5 um, ruling out Auricularia auricula-judae and are a little small for T. foliacea
