Observation 80889: Phleogena faginea (Fr.) Link
When: 2011-10-23
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing on rotting oak stump on bark near the ground. Looks weather beaten and tired out. I estimate them to have been about 5 mm high. Photo quality held up with cropping; it looks like Terana caerulea may be an associate.

This looks like a slime mold with lime in the peridium and not the soft bladder fungus.

It definitely weirded me out when I saw it. Barron says it is often mistaken for jelly fungus. With this ob, I can see why.
