The gelatinous, orange-yellow fruit body of the fungus, which can grow up to 7.5 cm (3.0 in) diameter, has a convoluted or lobed surface that is greasy or slimy when damp. It grows in crevices in bark, appearing during rainy weather. Within a few days after rain it dries into a thin film or shriveled mass capable of reviving after subsequent rain. This fungus occurs widely in broadleaf and mixed forests and is widely distributed in temperate and tropical regions that include Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North and South America. Although considered bland and flavorless, the fungus is edible.
De zwam bestaat uit gelatineuze, slappe lobben. In jonge staat zijn ze goudgeel, later kunnen ze verkleuren tot bleekgeel. Bij verdroging wordt de kleur donkerder, oranje-achtig. Daarnaast worden de lobben stijver, hoornachtig. Grootte: 2-10 cm breed
