Used references: Arora’s Mushrooms Demystified, Tremellales & Allies key, p. 671. "Fruiting body lobed or convoluted, 1.5-7 cm broad (or merging to form larger patches up to 12 cm or more); spores elliptical; found in the southern United States and warmer parts of the world (including the Orient). Could this be an indication of global warming, if confirmed from Vermont? In the opening of Tremellales & Allies, Arora notes that T. fuciformis is “… very popular: a translucent white species called Tremella fuciformis…” Sure looks “translucent white” to me.
