Club-like tuning fork

Calocera cornea

Description:

Pale to bright yellow finger-like projections arising from decaying wood. These yellow fruiting bodies were about 16mm tall and about 2 to 3 mm wide. Some ended in a club shape (pic #4) and others showed forking. The bases were pale. The jelly fingers were in small groups but perhaps at an early development stage.

Habitat:

damp tall eucalyptus forest

Notes:

The "cornea" perhaps represents the horn-like appearance of some. This is a saprobic jelly fungus. It felt a little like a jelly lolly. I did not wish to investigate any further as this was the only bunch I saw. This fungus belongs to the Dacromycetaceae family
