Myxarium nucleatum
Myxarium nucleatum
In Danby Wood. The common name of this jelly fungus is Granular Jelly Roll. Initially colourless or opaque white, the colour changes to pink and later to reddish or vinaceous brown. Most distinctive is the presence of small, hard, white seed-like granules or nuclei of up to 0.5 mm in diameter within the flesh of the fruit body. Fairly common in Britain and Ireland, where it can be found mainly on dead and decaying hardwood, particularly sycamore, beech and ash but also quite commonly on alders, willows, hawthorns, elms, oaks and elder throughout the year but most frequently during autumn and winter. This fungus can also be found growing in many countries on mainland Europe, in North America and northern Africa.
Danby Wood nature reserve

Danby Wood is a small broadleaved semi-natural woodland and one of eight local nature reserves in Norwich. Up until the 1930s the site was a working chalk quarry with many banks, hills and hollows that can still be seen today. The most common trees that colonised the site are sycamore and ash but lime, beech and oak are also present. The woodland supports a wide variety of birds and speckled wood, tortoiseshell and small white butterflies can be seen here during the summer months. The site is adjoined by the Eaton golf course and only a short distance away from the Marston Marshes. A public footpath linking both areas leads along the edge of the golf course.
