I have not got a chance yet to do a lot more research on it and figure out how to tell the states apart yet but I located 2 other books with info and there is also a journal article on the perfect state that I just downloaded. It is in Persoonia No. 8 part 3 1975 pages 329-333. You should be able to view it at http://www.cybertruffle.org.uk/cyberliber/
once there click on journals then click persoonia then select the volume and pages

Thank you John!

That’s very helpful. So P. tilachlidii is the teleomorph? And/or has the whole thing been renamed Tilachlidium? Is there any way to tell from this photo alone which stage this is?

According to the book Biodiversity of fungi. “Pseudonectria tilachlidii and the synnemata of its anamorph, Tilachlidium
brachiatum, common on agarics, also can be
found on the hymenium of polypores”

So same mushroom but different states.

When I first saw it I was not familiar with Judy’s name and I had to do some research.

That also looks quite promising…

Neither are species I’m personally familiar with so I couldn’t say. The ID was suggested on a foray in a few moments time. It’s possible that further scrutiny would have yielded more answers.

why not Tilachlidium, i wonder?
