Observation 14598: Auricularia Bull.

I was unable to examine this fungi as it was beyond my reach and fairly high up in the tree on the trunk. From my obs it seemed to have a semi-translucent cap(top) and the underside appears to have a wavy characteristic in the body. It also seems to me that it was not a woody fungi. I lean toward it being in the Jelly group of fungi, although the texture appeared to be less jelly like. I really do not have any reference that looks remotely like it, except for an example in Bruce Fuhrer’s book under the title of “Peziza whitei.”
