Cloud ear fungus (Auricularia polytricha, syn. Hirneola polytricha) is an edible jelly fungus. It is gray-brown in color and often used in Asian cooking.
It is known as Mandarin Chinese: pinyin: yún'ěr, lit. "cloud ear"), Chinese: pinyin: máomù'ěr, lit. "hairy wood ear"), or (pinyin: mù'ěr, lit. "wood ear" or "tree ear"), and in Japanese it is called arage kikurage, lit. "tree jellyfish"). It is also known as black fungus, black Chinese fungus (or mushroom), wood ear fungus, wood fungus, ear fungus, or tree ear fungus, an allusion to its rubbery ear-shaped growth. In Europe, it is frequently confused as "Jew's ear", and "Jelly ear", albeit they are very closely related. In Hawaii, they are known as pepeiao which means ear.[1] In Southeast Asia, it is known as bok nee in local English (from the Hokkien bo̍k-ní) and is used in the salad kerabu bok nee. In the Philippines, the locals call it tenga ng daga, meaning "rat's ear" due to its appearance.
