Cromwell Bottom 19th December 2013

Hi Alison

This fungi was close to the canal on dead wood. Browner than the picture shows and initially looked like jelly ear. The fungi was hollow when squeezed and bag like. I think it probably is Jelly ear but not seen it hollow like this. Can you confirm or otherwise. I need to set up my camera properly.


  1. Hi Bruce,

    I presume you mean it was inflated like a balloon, if so then that's weird and I've never seen one like that before! Certainly the smaller ones just emerging look to be typical examples. Did you take it with you as I'd love to see it and I know that Oliver would too.

  2. Hi Alison

    Did not take a specimen. Yes it is inflated like a balloon and with a velvety skin. Email for exact location now sent to you.

  3. Thanks Bruce for the directions,

    Merry Christmas.
