Tremella foliacea

Synonyms: Exidia foliacea, Gyraria foliacea, Naematelia foliacea, Tremella foliacea, Ulocolla foliacea.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Tremella foliacea is a species of fungus producing brownish, frondose, gelatinous basidiocarps (fruit bodies). It is widespread, particularly in north temperate regions, and is parasitic on other species of fungi (Stereum spp.), that grow on dead attached and recently fallen branches of broadleaf trees and conifers. Common names include leafy brain, jelly leaf, and brown witch's butter. The species is said to be edible, but is not much valued.
