Cyttaria gunnii – Myrtle Beech Orange

On branches of Myrtle Beech in cool temperate rainforests. The yellow-orange fruit-body of this fungus has a unique globular shape. It grows in bunches around galls formed by the fungus. When young, it looks like a tiny washed out orange but as it maturers the smooth membrane ruptures exposing numerous deep orange cavities.
