Tremella reticulata                       White Coral Jelly

This species isn't always as coral-like as it is in the photo above.  Fruitbodies are 5-12 cm wide and up to 8 cm tall, consisting of a tightly-packed cluster of tubular branches forming a hemispherical or elongate rosette-like structure. Branches are white to off-white or pale cream, tubular and radiating.  Widespread and not uncommon, it fruits on the ground in hardwood forests.
