Observation 120601: Craterellus neotubaeformis nom. prov.
When: 2012-12-19
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These were small, with caps up to 2 cm across.
The dimple on the cap was a direct well to the hollow stem.
The spore print was white.
Spores were ~ 9.1-11.2 X 7.2-9.5 microns.
Q(ave) = 1.19
Q(range) = 1.11-1.30. subglobose to broadly ellipsoid.
While they sort of look like small undeveloped C. tubaeformis, the spores appear to be more round than what is usually reported. They are usually referred to as ellipsoid.
The club-like stems are also a little odd.
Another oddity is their appearance at this time of year, although other species seem to be appearing early.
