California Fungi—Tremella foliacea Tremella foliacea
(Photo: © Boleslaw Kuznik)

Tremella foliacea Fries
Syst. Myc. 2: 212. 1822.

Common Name: brown witch's butter

  • Sporocarp

    Fruiting body 5-15 cm broad, globose to cushion-shaped, a mass of ruffled, leaf-like blades fused to a common base; surface viscid in wet weather, otherwise moist, individual blades variously wrinkled to folded, upper and lower surfaces fertile; color: dull brownish-vinaceous to cinnamon-brown, darkening in age; context thin, somewhat translucent, rubbery; odor and taste mild.

  • Spores

    Spores 7-8.5 x 6-8.5 µm, subglobose to oval, smooth, nonamyloid; spores cream to pale-yellowish in deposit; basidia longitudinally septate.

  • Habitat

    Usually solitary on downed hardwood logs and branches; fruiting from mid to late winter.

  • Edibility

    Edible; lacking in flavor, sometimes used in soups.

  • Comments

    Fruiting bodies of Tremella foliacea can grow to startling proportions, softball size or larger, a spectacular find for collectors used to seeing small globs of Yellow Witches Butter ( Tremella aurantia and Dacrymyces chrysospermus ).Although unlikely to be confused with other jellys, large specimens resemble somewhat Sparassis crispa , a member of the coral fungi group. The latter, however, has a much firmer texture, is ochraceous, not brown, and usually grows at the base of conifers, not directly on wood.
