Colour

They were fairly amber like, though to an extent this is exaggerated by the back lighting coming through..

Is there a difference in the 'pores(?)', little black dots covering the Fungus.

I found these last ob on carousel and mine had the black fleck's on it is found on willow to so that fit's in with the identification too.

That's good enough for me!

That's good enough for me! Just would make it a new 10km record on NBN.. Though they are under recorded i would assume..

under recorded

I would agree I think there are not enough people out there in the field looking.I have just started to record my finding this year through the Association for British fungi group as they say there are area's were recordings have never been made.

Growing on willow

The host species is a handy aid with these guys. E. recisa has the common name willow jelly in Scotland.
