Woodcrust, gelatinous

Phlebia tremellosa
This thin crust forms on dead hardwoods, rarely on conifers. Adjacent crusts may fuse or overlap, and the surface is dingy white to brownish, sometimes tinged with yellow or orange. The surface is wrinkled and pitted, sometimes looking poroid. However, there are no true pores and no tube layer under the surface. The edges may be turned up and free, and are white-hairy. The crust may be gelatinous. Appears in summer and fall.
