Auricularia auricula-judae (Bull.) Quel. ??  ??

Auricularia auricula-judae doesn’t occur here.  Microscopy required to determine the spp.
You must still check A.villosula.

Auricularia auricula-judae is listed according to book by Dr. Adhikari whereas A.villosula not listed so far ! 

…, please read the latest literature.
Works based on morphology alone aren’t considered reliable for fungal identification.
A.auricula-judae sensu stricto doesn’t occur here.

Is it India or Nepal, it does not occur? Just for clarification.
This sp. is from Nepal.

South east Asia.

That means it could be mis-identified in the book.

What are the other species of Auricularia listed in the book ?
Pl. check pdf of Diversity of Auricularia (Auriculariaceae, Auriculariales) in Thailand Phytotaxa 292(1):19 · January 2017
