And they are a favourite food item of the emperor tamarin (Saguinus imperator) ! Join us this summer to spy on these amazing little monkeys and maybe you’ll get to see them consume some Auricularia! Reposting @losamigosbiologicalstation:
Auricularia auricular mushrooms, otherwise known as “Jelly ears”, are easily spotted in the forest due to their noticeable ear-like shape. They can be found growing on live and/or dead tree trunks and are a great source of food. In fact, these mushrooms were commonly used in folk-medicine during the 19th century and are still used in cooking today; They are an especially popular ingredient in in hot and sour soup. 🍄 #mushrooms#amazon#peru#yum#shrooms#LosAmigosBiologicalStation#LosAmigos#ACCA#biodiversity#food#nature
