This one should prove fun for the Fungites here, 1st thought is that it was Calocera cornea (Small Stagshorn) then when I posted a different image of it to TE and Jax thought it might be (Calocera palidospathulata) but a search on google brings up my image on TE and a record in text for a fungle hunt at Rydale Hall.
One of my books lists a simular one and a hunt of the web got me a single match which looked the same as the one here with the cupped tops instead of the points normal in the small stagshorn.
There is always the posibility that there are 2 different but simular fungi on this dead Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) branch which is about 2inch-50mm thick.
The whole Calocera group sem to be dependant on dead fallen wood or even timber fences.

You're right.This is a tricky one to ID.At first glance I thought Tremella,a jelly fungus,but closer inspection leads me to believe you're on the right track.It does seem to be a club fungus.Ramaria sp. is another that came to mind,but your Calocera glossoides is more likely.There don't seem to be a lot of pictures of it on the web.
Interesting post nevertheless.

A very nice one it looks like jelly.
The yellow looks a little grey, was it late???

You are really looking up the funny fungis now. This one I have never seen but it looks very interesting. Very good close-up with good details and very nice colours.

Una bonita presentacion de una diminuta y extraña especie en TN.
Agradable POV con suaves tonos y buena nitidez.
El link a la imagen de TE ayuda a una vision total de estos hongos.

I'm probably the last one that will be able to ID this, but I know when something has bee well captured - this one is.

Thanks for posting

They are very beautiful Robert, I love the shot in TE, maybe more than this one for the unusual distribution. I have never seen them, it has been very instructive. You did very well, this textures are difficult. Thanks.

Yummy.. Jelly babies. :) I have said it about a hundred times but the variety of the fungi I see is unbelievable. This has a noce POV, the textures and light managed to perfection. Great shot Robert.
