Jelly Fungus

Description:

A bright orange Jelly Fungus growing on a dead branch (not pine). These are also called Witches Butter, a really neat name for this stuff. I am not sure if this one is a species of Tremella or Dacrymyces. Supposedly, Dacrymyces Jelly is white at the point of attachment to the wood. Some of the jelly tips are colorless. Family Dacrymycetaceae.

Habitat:

Growing on dead wood branches in a canyon just to the side of the Cave and river. Dry Season. Chorreadero Waterfall Park, Chiapa de Corzo, Chiapas, Mexico.
