This was a thick batch of Tremella mesenterica or Witch’s Butter growing along a moss-covered log in the Hansville Greenway Wildlife Corridor. The largest glob was about 1 1/2" diameter, and it felt like firm jello.

Description

Found on the side of a trail in a transition area between a mostly dense Doug fir/oak woodland and more sparse oak woodland. The fungus was found on a stump and was about 3 inches long. It hadn't rained in the area (California drought) for a while so the fungus was dry.

Description from Wikipedia

Tremella is a genus of fungi in the family Tremellaceae. All Tremella species are parasites of other fungi and most produce anamorphic yeast states. Basidiocarps (fruit bodies), when produced, are gelatinous and are colloquially classed among the "jelly fungi". Over 100 species of Tremella are currently recognized worldwide. Two species, Tremella fuciformis and Tremella aurantialba, are commercially cultivated for food.
