It looks like Auricularia auricula-judae now. What do you think? Alison January 23, 2013 at 8:15 pm - Reply Yes it does Bruce, a little in the photo, but when you see it in front of you, it's definitely Exidia glandulosa. Alison January 23, 2013 at 8:16 pm - Reply I also rehydrated Auricularia auricula-judae, and they have grown enormous, much larger then when I picked and then dessicated them.

Steve Blacksmith January 23, 2013 at 10:08 pm - Reply Well done Alison for finding the id of this one that I suggested was possibly Common Tar Crust (Diatrype stigma.) Now we have to find that ! I've rehydrated the small specimen I brought home and yes! it's swelled up into the Witch's Butter (Exidia glandulosa)we're familiar with just as you predicted. Under the 20x lens in bright light it looks like brownish frogspawn with black "embryos" partly breaking the surface.
