Observation 4920: Tremella aurantia Schwein.
When: 2007-11-12
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Given the comments on other observations on this site, I guess I have to say, I have no idea on this one. Other sitings on things like this one, are obviously on hardwood with Stereum right next to it, or very close by. This one, is on a smaller branch than the others, and no obvious Stereum, Also this one seems to be more random and less lobed, if that makes sense. So, no idea here really… I might just more this to T. aurantia, since there isn’t any evidence that there is more than one orange jelly up there.

Recognized by sight: What little experience I have with this distinction points me towards T. aurantia. It seems to be more convoluted than T. mesenterica is supposed to be. It would be nice to see Stereum on the stick, but I also don’t see any Peniophora. To really tell the difference you need to use a scope. I’ve added notes to on the species pages about microscopic differences.
