Cromwell Bottom January 11th 2014

These fungi were seen whilst we collected the old birds nests from the boxes

Jelly Ear fungus - Auricularia auricula-judea

The same, showing how translucent these can be

Found on a dead branch

Many thanks to Peachy Steve and Alison this is now identified as Plicatura crispa


  1. With this growing so densely I wonder if it might be Plicatura crispa (Crimped Gill). I've seen some looking like this recently. I can't tell if there is any pale brown above but it looks as though there might be.

  2. Thanks Peachy
    We will see if anyone else comments.

  3. Hi Bruce,

    I agree with Steve that it is Plicatura crispa as it does have crimped gills.
