Observation 27146: Tremella encephala Pers.
When: 2009-10-18
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: OMS Herbarium voucher collection 02091018-083. I personally have not seen this species before, so was happy to attend the 2009 OMS Fall Mushroom Show. Tiny fungus, considering the identification tag above it is 3 inches wide, and the specimen below only slightly wider than the tag’s pin width: about 3/4 inch. Not certain of the twig it’s growing on, but could be a Pinus species.

A good guess

This was a contribution of mine to the OMS Fall show. Both Lorelei and Judy expressed uncertainty in this identification, going with the best (albeit inconclusive) guess they could come up with.
