Auricularia americana?

Recommended Posts

Found growing alone on what looks like a box elder just after a rain. Can't remember if wood was dead or alive, but probably dead.

This fungus looks like it could possibly Exidia Recisa but it looks perhaps a bit too brown to be E. recisa?

I agree, likely Auricularia. A recent study of the North American Auricualria has resulted in the documentation of a few new species. It is currently believed that the most common NA Auricularia found on hardwood is A. angiospermarum. A. americana is said to occur on conifer wood. Otherwise, these two species are very similar in appearance.
