orange fungus

Is this orange-peel fungus? It doesn't look quite right.
Thanks.

Hi SB,

Orange Peel is usually terrestrial - This is Tremella mesenterica, Yellow Brain which commonly grows on branches held above the ground where it parasitizes Peniophora species (another group of fungi).

Cheers,
Nick

This is Orange Peel Fungus as identified for me by Davebutterflyman and Trichia some time ago.
