Notes: Initially resembled images of Exidia glandulosa, E. recisa, or perhaps Tremella foliacea, but the more I look the more different I see from (pictures of) these species.

On southern oak branch

Sam, these were on a fallen Quercus falcata branch. I agree the shape of the lobes doesn’t seem right (based on pictures, not my previous experience!).

why I doubt it

I am doubtful because of the shapes and clustering. The shape in what I find that I’ve [hopefully accurately] called E. recisa is like that of a human ear. There are variations, but these are out of the variations I’ve seen.

Also, the high quantity that are so closely clustered together doesn’t appaer like what I’ve seen w/E. recisa.

The color, expected texture, and lichen being near it do.

I’ve found mine on oak branches. What wood were these on?
