small yellow fungi on a fallen log
Welcome NuwanChathuranga. I learnt 3 new species today though I was searching for only one1]Calocera viscosa [yellow stagshorn] 2] Spathularia flavida [Yellow earth tongue] and the right one 3] Dacryopinax spathularia an edible jelly fungus. Thank you all, it has been very informative.
these are less than 2cm in size so i go with chandrahas.dabke's suggestion thank you all for the help!
The similarity is amazing same colour, similar shape, similar habitat, but if the size also matches then what chandrahas.dabke suggested would be right. From this photo its tough to make out the actual size, but it seems taller than 2 cm. Because Dacryopinax spathularia is a smaller species- "The fruit bodies of Dacryopinax spathularia are spatula-shaped, usually 1–1.5 cm (0.4–0.6 in) tall and between 0.5–3 mm wide."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dacryopinax_spathulariaBut if NuwanChathuranga confirm that it is less than 2cm in length then it could be Dacryopinax spathularia.
Just check this link. It looks similarhttp://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/141...
I also think it is Calocera viscosa [yellow stagshorn] . A similar picture is there in this site.- 5th pictures on the right side. ttp://www.treesforlife.org.uk/forest/biodiversity/fungi.html
They do grow on rotten logs, but without further development it's easy to say
hmm... that is a possibility can you confirm it! thanks a lot pouihi!!
There's also Calocera viscosa
i'm not sure it's Yellow earth tongue, anyway thank you pouihi!
