Yellow stagshorn

Calocera viscosa

Description:

Bright orange or orange-yellow, up to 10 cm tall, greasy and viscid, with antler-like branches often forked near the tips, hence the common name Jelly antler fungus is sometimes given to this species. In dry weather, the colour can become orange-red.

Habitat:

This wood-rotting fungus is found in most parts of mainland Europe as well as in many other regions of the world including North America. Calocera viscosa grows on roots and stumps of conifers.

Notes:

Spotted in a mixed forest in Frieswijk, Holland. (sources: see reference)

Thank you so much for the nomination, António and 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!
