Hardcastle Crags 24.03.2014

Jelly Ear (Auricularia auricula-judae) on a fallen Ash (Fraxinus excelsior) log.

When I saw this at first I had no idea what it was. It was completely desiccated but I took some home and rehydrated it and it turned out to be Phlebiopsis gigantea on Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris).

Rehydrated specimen photographed the following day and what a complete transformation.

 Lamproystidia awl shaped and densely encrusted beyond the hymenium.
