Tremellodendron schweinitzii (T. pallidum) 04600

“False Coral” fungus is more jelly-like than coral-like in texture. In other words, it doesn’t break as easily as do the coral mushrooms like the clavarias, clavulinas and ramarias, for example. Fittingly they are in other orders. Tremellodendron schweinitzii is a common fungus seen especially along woodland paths in summer and autumn. Mycorrhizal with trees.
