Jews ear fungus.


Jews ear fungus. (Fagus sylvatica (Common Beech))

Feel like soft rubbery jelly. They are apparently edible but I have never had the courage to try.

Auricularia auricula, Hirneola auricula-judae is its Latin name [or names]. Mycologists have re classified it . just like the botanists and the plants.

when they get tatty they look as they have been in a fight.
