Pseudohydnum gelatinosum

Pseudohydnum gelatinosum


About 30mm wide in a loose group of 5 on a very large eucalyptus (E regnans?)


In a local nature reserve adjoining a national park.


Also called toothed jelly fungus, false hedgehog mushroom, and white jelly mushroom. Apparently they can be candied for eating but are a bit bland.
