MY best guess would be Auricularia auricula. Don't they have something to do with affecting blood something in the body?

The sort of hairy surface and the coloration are all correct.  Spore print should be white my referance material says.  And since it grew from wood.  Nice find.  :thumbup:

"Auricularia auricula-judae and its cousin A. polytricha have been used as medicines for many centuries in China, particularly to cure hemorrhoids and strengthen the body, perhaps by stimulating the immune system. It was also sometimes used to treat such widely varying conditions as hemoptysis (spitting up blood), angina (cardiac pain), diarrhea, and warding against gastrointestinal upset.

"Modern" medicine has yielded other secrets from Auricularia. It has been shown to block blood clotting by obstructing the platelets. There have actually been cases of internal bleeding from particularly sensitive people who accidentally ate too much sweet and sour soup combined with stir-fry containing this fungus. There is some evidence that regular ingestion of Auricularia in small doses can be therapeutic in preventing strokes and heart attacks.

Other therapeutic uses of Auricularia from modern medicine include lowering blood cholesterol and triglycerides. There is even some evidence it can play a role in treating diabetes and cancer, and some studies claim it can reverse ageing by increasing SOD activity for DNA repair. However, due to the possibility of anti-fertility effects, this fungus is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women, as well as those intending to conceive. There is also a report of a man who consumed over 250 grams of this fungus who developed a severe "solar dermatitis," making his skin very sensitive to sunlight. Although there is anecdotal information such as this, general side effects are not well documented or expected. "

Cool finds doc- than you for that info- very interesting and far more comprehensive than what I recall about their cureative properties. Thanks for the link as well. You've inspired me to try a hand at finding some this week- it's my new goal.

Good luck!


These have been growing on a stump in my backyard since I moved here last Sept.,but,usually the sun will bake them before they mature.We have had a few days rain and they finally matured.
I may try to cultivate these-undecided as of yet,lol.

Those dry out and reconstitute really nice. When they'er dry, they have the same look and feel as brown pasta; soak one for half an hour and it's like you just picked it off the tree.
