Jelly Fungus


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.


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.
