Exidia?


Recommended Posts

Called either Exidia recisa or E. crenata. My understanding is the latter is the currently accepted name. This is a common damp, cool/cold weather species. Fruits on hardwood, often during winter thaws.

Aside from having a very similar Appearance, Exidia recisa/crenata and Auricularia tend to fruit during similar cool/damp conditions. Auricularia has flesh that is firmer. The (usually) convex side has a floury matte appearance. 

I have dried/rehydrated Exidia recisa/crenata for use in soup, the same as I do with Auricularia. The quality of Exidia is not as good as Tree Ear, which has a pleasing crunchy texture. But, it's similar.
