Description

Exidia recisa is a jelly fungus that grows on dead sticks and branches. It is moist and soft, but dries out quickly. This is also called Amber Jelly, but in many cases can be dark reddish/purplish brown, as well as amber.

Exidia recisa have the sharper ridges seen here, while the upper surface of the true Jelly Ear (Auricularia auricula) are silky to downy with no sharp ridges. I THINK Jelly Ears are larger, too, but that remains to be seen...
