Observation 130698: Tremella fuciformis Berk.
When: 2013-03-09
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This specimen (possibly a Coralloides), is the only one I have encountered in this partiular shape. It was in good condition, growing in a low light area, and after recent heavy rainfall. Only one specimen was found. I have photographed this species but in previous finds it has always been elongated tapering away at the ends on a horizontal plane. This specimen was a perfect circular shape. There appeared to be a lot of small insects active on the flat areas of growth. The size was about as big as a large orange or softball and possibly abot 100mm (4inches in diameter.) There did not appear to be a stem, although I did not remove the fungi from its habitat.
(I did spend some time enjoying its beauty).
