unidentified jelly fungus
    #2806787 - 06/18/04 08:27 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Here are some pics of an unidentified jelly fungus I found today while foraying in eastern colorado. I cant seem to find anything like it in my field guides.

It was found in eastern colorado, growing in the branch tips of the common juniper tree.

Any educated guesses appreciated!

best regards,


sorry for the big pics im having computer problems and the UBB coade wont display for some reason

That looks like Gymnosporangium juniperi-virginianae (there's a name and a half!), also known as Cedar Apple Rust (due to people misnaming junipers as cedars).

It's an interesting parasite in that it causes lots of damage to apple and pear trees, but the spores from the apple and pear infections can't infect other apples and pears - only the spores from a juniper infection can. Tom Volk has some good explanation on his page at the link.

Happy mushrooming!
