This vivid funghi was growing on Sitka Spruce near An Curran on the Oa. It can also be yellow, as its name suggests. I love the description in Phillips Mushroom book: ' 2-10 cm across, comprising soft, flabby, gelatinous lobes and folds, golden-yellow to orange, drying dark orange, horny and brittle.' Makes me shiver just reading it! It says it grows on deciduous branches, but I'm pretty sure that's what it is.
Photographs, or even short video clips, are particularly welcome.
We look forward to hearing from you
