Observation 163291: Tremella mesenterica Retz.
When: 2014-04-10
(45.8103° -77.1388° 200m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This was in Zone 03 on a Betula papyrifera log. The white crystalline stuff adjacent to the log is snow! It should normally be gone on this date but for some reason there’s still a fair bit of it in there.

The host is wrong for Dacrymyces palmatus, so I have to suspect Tremella — is the stuff to the left of the leftmost fruit body a dried out old Stereum? These probably overwintered after freezing solid sometime around when the big “2014” lit up above Times Square.
