Observation 63563: Tremella mesenterella Bandoni & Ginns

Notes:
Original Herbarium Label: Tremella mesenterella Bandoni & Ginns
Herbarium Specimen: UBC F31801
This species was described by Bandoni and Ginns (1998) quite recently, only about eight years ago (Can. J. Bot. 76: 1549). It is best seen on rainy days, when the fungus forms pale, gelatinous blobs hanging from dead branches. It is parasitic on the resupinate (coat-forming) fungus Peniophora sp. Tremella mesenterella occurrs on branches of ocean spray, Holodiscus discolor. Bandoni & Ginns (l.c.) report this fungus on branches of various deciduous shrubs and trees, but ocean spray was not listed among them and it is a new, not-yet-reported substrate.
