The growth on fairly intact-looking wood, really neat round-hemispheric caps that look subviscid when young, fairly inconspicuous veil remnants remind me of a Tubaria that I find in Santa Cruz that has strongly capitate cheilocystidia. For this last reason, we’ve applied the name T. hiemalis, but that may just be a stopgap name until we research ours further.
