Phlebia tremellosa (Jelly Rot) - underside. Knole Park, 3 November 2012
How can something grow into an intricate pattern like this, weaving over and under alternate ribs? This is the underside of a fungus from a fallen treetrunk. It had a soft texture and reminded me of an uncooked crumpet. The upper side was also creamy white, but hairy rather than patterned.
