Black fungus belongs to the Auricularia family and its scientific name is Auricularia polytricha. It is one of the 10 to 15 different species of mushrooms worldwide and is mainly found in China. Black fungus is also called "cloud ear fungus" or "tree ear fungus" because they look like shriveled ear lobes. These little mushrooms are often used in Asian stir-fry's and stews.

Black fungus has been used by practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine since the 19th century, who relied on it for treating conditions like jaundice and sore throats.
