Tripe Fungus

What I think is tripe fungus, Auricularia mesenterica, growing on a decaying log.  Note the hairs on the upper surfaces.  There are some good photos of this rather variable species in this thread at Arbtalk.co.uk.

Photo taken in the Wilderness, Whiteknights Park, Reading University grounds, Reading, UK, on 2011-12-21.
