Ha! Looks like it’s growing right out of the crack.

I thought the White Oak limb was a painted white line.

The past couple springs I’ve found quite a bit of brown to dark-brown elastic jelly on a variety of hardwood species (none yet this year). I’ve been calling it Exidia recisa based upon the relative smoothness of the surface and the dark (not black) color. E. glandulosa is reported as featuring warts/bumps; except Kuo says that glandulosa can be smooth, and that the color varies from black to reddish-black. Not really sure what to think of “reddish-black”, sounds close to some shade of brown. It seems also that glandulosa is considered to be less apt to form the ear-like pieces that I associate with recisa. E. truncata and E. nigricans are two other names that have been applied to either glandulosa or some other similar dark Exidia.

Seems to me like there’s some straightening-out in order for genus Exidia.

I broke the dead limb off a living white oak tree.

Walt, I just noticed…

This is growing from a crack in a paved road…!
