you must distinguish between Tremella and other jelly fungi because they aren’t closely related to another. For example Tremella is a genus of the order Tremellales and Exidia belongs to the Auriculariales.

I don’t know why T. foliacea use Stereum spp. as host. But the hosts of the Tremella species are more diverse then one species or one genus. Just have a look to the english Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tremella#Species_and_hosts

I hope this answers your question?

Can you explain in short why jellies use Stereum as a host? I remember Noah showing me that t folliacea is around s complicatum. TIA.

I’m quite confident,

because the only other fungus that I found on that piece of eucalyptus was a Stereum (a single specimen) that seemed to me to be S. hirsutum. This was the reason to take the 3rd photo attached, where the cap of the Stereum can be seen in the upper central part.
Thanks, Andreas, for asking.

Are you sure?

Do you see any fruiting bodies of the host Stereum hirsutum at the substrate?
Regards, Andreas
