Most of what I found was growing on Balsam or Pine between the bark and wood or out the end of a sawed log soft wood.
I found one growing on birch and this one would be Tremella mesenterica hard wood.
the last picture you can see it is growing on birch ( I forgot to re size pic )
This stuff is soft and squishy like a gummy bear. I have tasted this stuff when dry it is crunchy chewy and when wet it is slimy and gummy bear like its not a bad taste bland would be good in soups etc.
I also believe it would be a good moisturizer on the skin when it is dry or damaged feels soothing to skin.

Hahah ok looking back is funny some times:-). I love that I took a b4 and after picture ...they can disappear all dried out.....it's worth knowing the size these mushrooms can range in....the same mushroom.....place the mushroom in water again and see it possibly get even bigger... depending on how much water it was holding b4 drying it out...???? Dacrymyces palmatus (I hate names not being in the auto correct dictionary it feels like I have to edit everything 5 times)
Last fall I showed the kids that if you dry this fungi out and then soak it in water it absorbs water and grows bigger like those growing kid sponges they thought it was really cool.https://mycotopia.ne...04&d=1316950732https://mycotopia.ne...05&d=1316950732https://mycotopia.ne...06&d=1316950732https://mycotopia.ne...07&d=1316950732https://mycotopia.ne...08&d=1316950732Thanks for the info Turkey Ranch
D. Palmatus. The meaning of Palmatus. Is can you guess palm that's the first part and -atus meaning "resembling" or "similar to"....
So in this case :-) determining what mushroom you have dose come to size D. c.... or D. p ....
