Apricot jelly, anyone?

From an email by Jocie to the Botany Group on October 10.

Here are some photos and notes from Alison M. about the lovely apricot jelly fungus.

Alison’s notes

I’d like to add these photos of Tremiscus helvelloides, which would I think come under wonderful if not weird fungi –  the common name is apricot jelly. We saw it on the Shepherd’s Creek trail (Buttle Lake area) October 1st. I have also found it on the road to Diver’s Lake, before one gets to the edge of the forest. Georgia O’Keeffe would have been delighted with both the contours and the colour.
