Favolus/Favolaschia (both relegated back to Polyporous if I’m not mistaken) are poroid fleshy fungi. These are most certainly jelly fungus, Auricularia delicata to be precise, and as the presence of the bug buffet line demonstrates, are quite edible!

Favolaschia sp.?

I’d start with Favolaschia and see what you think.

A little more detail?

While it’s technically possible to make multiple Observations in two different countries on the same day, I believe regular visitors to this site would appreciate a little more detailed information. Not only would the specifics make your postings more interesting, they also can help in the identification.
