but what it is…???
It is possible to be an old Auricularia mesenterica?
watery-gelatinous or tough?
The cross section show a solid black mass inside, black rubber texture, the white is a very thin superficial layer.
but I agree a cross-section would say a lot.
…although it does resemble Hubbsia somewhat. But the habitat is totally wrong. Did you get a chance to cut into it at all, Eduardo? Did it have a soft rubbery texture? If it’s a lichen, this would certainly be hollow, with a soft but tough skin. Slice into it and you should see a green layer of algae just under the surface.
