The fallen tree I posted a couple of weeks ago has masses of these Jelly Ear fungi, on the trunk and on what would have been the higher branches. Sometimes called Wood Ears I wonder if their presence indicates the dead tree was Elder?
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
But the vast majority of specimens are found on this species. According to Wikipedia -
"It has also been recorded on... sycamore, beech, ash, spindle, and in one particular case, the sycamore draining board of an old sink in Hatton Garden."
Thanks, I know some fungi are very specific but clearly not this one!
