Forum rules
the Fungi for ID Forum rules,
in the interests of user safety we have applied the following rules to this form,

Please do not post any ID requests for the edibility or for "recreational" usage, in this (or any other) board,
identification of any fungi should not be relied on from this forum (or any other for that matter) to be totally accurate, as it is very easy to mistake any fungi for another one, especially from just a photograph alone, which could prove fatal to yourself if you were to eat the said fungi,
any posts we think may contain such requests will be removed,
and we ask all members to report any such posts should they find them here on the forum.

a jelly type fungus for id please,
we found this on a fallen branch, it was under an oak tree, so its probably an oak branch ?
a soft jelly/rubbery feel, wrinkled and folded, looking like a brown version of those yellow brain ones that others have been posting here,

I would suggest this is Leafy Brain - Tremella foliacea, nice find as it is not all that common
