Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

While checking on the progress of the Pisolithus arrhizus in Observation 12295, in the YWCA parking lot, I was thrilled to find the largest jelly I’d ever seen. Even more surprising was that there’d been no rain. It had none of the characteristics I’d come to expect of Tremella or Dacrymyces so I carefully removed it from the stick it was attached to and brought it home for later study. A careful cleaning revealed it’s true nature. Happy Halloween!

This I think is Tremella arachnidiopsis…

I should’ve mentioned that it’s about 4" tall and I found myself unwilling to taste it. Probably not an edible.

A gummy spider?
