Russula emetica typically occurs in sphagnum moss areas - that is, wetland environments. This is a common dry land mushroom. It's also quite mild to the taste - not hot or peppery or acrid at all.
Erin is right - the Coral Jelly - its look and feel are quite different from typical coral fungi.
Erin is right - this isn't a coral mushroom - it's a jelly fungus that just resembles a coral - it's tougher, though, and the branches are often flatter rather than rounded, and its base (inside) is gelatinized.
very nice photo - thanks for posting!
Porcelain berry is NOT EDIBLE.....There are a lot of grape look-alikes - and this is one of them....
very, very cool !
I love your yellow lady's slipper. We'll be looking for it this spring - and mapping a quadrant around it to see what mushrooms come up later in the season. Could be a connection, you know.
is that a chanterelle? you have to turn one over and photograph the underside as well........
