Observation 14595: Auricularia Bull.

This jelly fungi was in close proximity to another (Brown Jelly fungi) I have separated the two and entered individually with a composite image included.The reference I have for this fungi shows it as a group of fungi where as the images I have taken they are all individual growths. They were very very gelantous. ie when I tried to remove them they were like glue and sticky and elastic in character. It was impossible to remove one for further inspection. (not so the brown jelly fungi growing next to these.) I have only shown the Brown jelly fungi for reference to their cohabitation. This area had received a high rainfall and the fungi were exposed to direct sunlight but at the time it was very humid (100%) and very little direct light due to the overcast conditions.
The brown jelly fungi has been shown with underside included (above original image)

Re compaison

The dark brown jelly like fungi in my reference looks like the description I have for Tremella fimbriata. Can I get some more obs on this please, KK

Tremella sp.

Hi folks, the “Tremella fimbriata” seemds to me to be a closer resemblance? Can anyone add to this obs please, KK
