Calocera viscosa - commonly known as the yellow stagshorn, is a jelly fungus, characterized by their unique "tuning fork" basidia. It has bright orange, yellow or occasionally white branching basidiocarps, which are somewhat gelatinous in texture and slimy to the touch. It is relatively large for a jelly fungus, and can reach up to ten centimetres in height. It grows on decaying conifer wood, typically stumps and roots, although this may not be obvious if the wood. It fruits throughout the year, but is most commonly seen in autumn. It is not poisonous
