based on photographic likeness, but there may be a question of known distribution. whether this is inside or outside of that of T. iduensis, calling it that should really rely on more than a photograph. Tremella sp. but like so many jelly fungi, a look at the basidia is crucial.


Thank you for all your kind comments. kk (www.kundabungid.com) {for Judi)

you should see his wildlife photos! Dude.

Of course, it helps to be living in a biological “oddity” paradise, as well as having a good eye, Mate. ;)

Ian came to fungi late in his natural history wanderings (as did I), but those mushrooms choose their “victims” wisely. He has become an invaluable member of our mushroom community. But hey, we all start from zero. It is our dedication and talent that takes us to the heights.

Awake your own sleeping mushroom talents. Keep on finding and observing and documenting. Together, we can make it better.

Fantastic photos!
