    can't really tell but I think it is an elephant ear. I wouldn't eat it unless I knew for sure.

    The Missouri Department of Conservation has many experts in many fields. I am sure they have at least one on plant life.

    You would need an expert in Mycology , not plantlife. Actually, I didn't say tree ear, just because, I actually collect them, cook with them and enjoy them. They are flavorless, but have a very strange texture. Mycology is a hobby of mine and I have been hunting and identifiing midwestern fungus for about 20 years. I'm not telling you to eat it, I would like to see more pictures first. Many good books available, type in Tree Ear in google. And good luck, mushroom hunting usually starts with morels for most people, with some expert guidence, here in the midwest there are at least 7 very choice edible mushrooms(i would not call the tree ear choice), just be careful, maybe join a Mycology club, enjoy...

    That is not an elephant ear I pick and eat them and they sure don't look like that. I have saw ones like in your pic growing on the base of downed trees alot this year. They look almost like jelly. I would not eat.
