To think I stayed up most of the evening trying to research this obscure little species. Never found that resource.

So yes, it doesn’t look anything like that. Oddly the CNALH description doesn’t match that resource’s photos either!

So it looks much like Tremella ramalinae.

You can find info on Tremella nieblae at

which includes photos of the fungus.

Little info on this parasite species.

CNALH: “surface: similar to that of the host, but frequently more intensively pigmented, either darker or more orange-brown; fertile”

The other recorded lichenocolous fungi from the islands don’t cause such notable symptoms, based on the same source’s descriptions.
