Black Jelly Fungus
Category: Wilden Marsh Nature Reserve
Fascinating. I have never seen fungus like this.
I’m no expert in fungi, but I think this is Exidia glandulosa, a jelly fungus in the family Auriculariaceae. It is a common, wood-rotting species in Europe, typically growing on dead attached branches of oak. The fruit bodies are up to 3 cm wide, shiny, black and blister-like, and grow singly or in clusters.
