I found this fungus growing on rotten wood at the edge of our garden. A quick search suggested it might be Tremella mesenterica, Yellow Brain Fungus. I am slightly confused as this seems to cover a number of similar fungi. So that’s the teaser, is it or isn’t it?
Whether it is or is not doesn’t really matter photographically but I’d like to satisfy my curiosity.
STOP PRESS: it isn’t Tremella mesenterica but the even more delightful Fuligo septica otherwise known as, and I kid you not, Dog’s Vomit Slime Mold. So it isn’t even a fungus but a Mycetozoa.
