Ascocoryne sarcoides / cylichnium
Description:

Purple jelly-like blobs on a treestump, up to c 1cm across. Ascococoryne I think, but probably not possible to separate sarcoides and cylichnium from photos from what I've read.

Identifications

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

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