Pseudohydnum gelatinosum             Toothed Jelly Fungus

This is a very  distinctive species and the common name says it all.  Caps are 2-5 cm across, white to greyish or yellow-brown, rough to velvety on top, spongy-gelatinous, and shelving to spatula-shaped.  Stalks are almost lacking or up to 5 cm long and lateral. The undersurface of the cap is white and lined with densely-packed, translucent teeth. Widespread and common on well-rotted conifer wood.
