Fungi - as individuals and in groups, close together on elderberry tree. Change in colour and appearance according to size. Smallest in photos (as group) around an inch across and chestnutty brown. Look as if would be velvetty to touch - but didn't try. Get paler as grow, then darken to grey / black, shrivelled - by which point about two inches from top to bottom.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

Thank you for the ID. I

Thank you for the ID. I wondered about Auricularia auricula-judae but it seemed so very different in shape and colour from a previous fungus I submitted which looked very different in shape and in colour and which was also identified as jelly ear.
