Saprobic; our sample was found on a fallen branch of a hardwood, which is common, especially on oak. Found globally. In North America, it is most commonly found in the Midwest, but also observed in the Northeast. Fruiting body length 1 in, amber in color. No distinguishable stem, but the fruiting body is attached to the surface by a central point shorter than the length of the full body. Gelatinous and jelly-like, but holds its shape unless squeezed firmly. Wave-like structure with depressions that cave into the center. The species is found worldwide and one study found it to be abundant in the unburned forests of Northwestern Alaska (Alshammari 2019). ID number: 03.14.01.2021
