Tremella mesenterica Tremellaceae Yellow Brain

Tremella mesenterica 15kb

Tremella mesenterica, Yellow Brain. These yellow to orange jelly-like extrusions are often found on old Gorse bushes, but also occur on other plants. Their old name was Witch's Butter, but that has now gone to the far-less appetizing Exidia granulosa. Each fruit body is around 2-3 cm in diameter, and is seen on the cliffs, on the Common and occasionally inland.
