but idk if it starts out transparent like this. Z. gemellipara is described from M. nucleatum.

A guess would be some type of Ophiostoma. I will try to find some papers

Nor am I.

I just know one species that is rather common here in Europe, the famous E. deglubens. Many other have been described, mainly totally resupinate ones of which I have never ever found or seen one.
I have no idea about the situation in America that’s why I hesitated to propose the genus. Besides microscopical work would be needed. Are there any papers on it?

Yes Gerhard

I read that Eichleriella has fertile protuberances. I am not familiar with this genus and suspect it is rare in North America.

Do you mean those thorn-like protuberances?

This does point to Eichleriella.
