Beech jellydisc

Neobulgaria pura

Description:

Pinkish-ochre, gelatinous fruitbodies initially shaped like spinning tops but eventually distorting as they push up against one another in groups, becoming more cup-like. This species is quite variable in size, the individual cups being typically 0.4 to 1.5 cm across and up to 8 mm tall. A brain-like form, Neobulgaria pura var. foliacea has a folded structure.

Habitat:

On fallen broad-leaved trees, particularly beech and oaks.

Notes:

Spotted in Speulderbos, Veluwe, Holland. (sources: see reference)

Thank you for the nomination Antonio & PN!

“Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!”
