Cups in jelly

Description:

Very small outgrowths of tiny white cup shapes within a clear jelly. Each group was about 15mm wide so the cups might be about 3-4mm

Habitat:

Forming on the trunk of a very wet Nothofagus in a rainforest nature reserve

Notes:

Yet to identify this. Might be too undeveloped for a firm ID.

Palates change with age, so sago pudding might be delicious. Things I loathed as a child are favourites now (oysters, olives, blue cheese...yum!). Spicy sago with rice sounds divine!

Same Neil, looks a lot like sago. In India we make sago spiced up with a slightly fried rice, and a load of spices :-)

Cool spotting, Mark. This reminds me of the sago pudding my Mum would make for us when we were kids. I'm sure she was trying to punish us, cos I hated it :(

This most likely could be Ductifera sucina, due to the type of environment it thrives in. Ductifera sucina is also a native fungi to Victoria. This link might further help in fungi of Australia.
