Exidia recisa = Amber Jelly
This is a good time of year to look for this and best seen after days of rain as we have had. Look at small willow twigs at head-height. Exidia recisa has several english names. Willow is the most common host but can be on some other trees. A similar looking species is found on Birch, Exidia repanda.
When frosted it can look splendid particularly in sunny weather. After several dry, hot days it will form an inconspicuous crust to soon revive after rain.
