Wrinkled Peach

Wrinkled PeachTypically found growing on the stumps and logs of rotting hardwoods, particularly on dead elm. Mature specimens may usually be identified by the pinkish color and the distinctive ridged and veined surface of their rubbery caps; variations in the color and quantity of light received during development lead to variations in the size, shape, and cap colour. At its best it is a striking orange with distinctive ridges but is more often seen with a thick, slimy, pinkish cap.
