Dacrymyces chrysospermus

Orange Jelly; Witches’ Butter

SKU: Dacrymyces chrysospermus Category:



Common Name: Orange Jelly; Witches’ Butter

 Looks very similar to the more frequently found Tremella mesenterica. The main differences are that grows on conifer wood and is not associated with Stereum species. The two species can easily be separated by microscopic analysis.
