Observation 192050: Clavariadelphus unicolor (Berk. & Ravenel) Corner
When: 2014-12-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Habitat: This fungus was found growing gregariously in a scattered fashion in soil, in an open yet shady area.

Pileus: It has a dark burnt brown color, with a dull surface almost resembling a human brain with its wrinkled textures (although some were smooth). The size of the pileus was about 3.0 – 6.0 cm, although there was no actual distinguishable cap from the stipe. It was shaped like a cylinder.

Stipe: I didn’t really notice a stipe that was distinct from the cap, but I did call it a central stipe. The length of the stipe was from 4.0-10.0cm, although we measured the entire fruiting body.

Other notes: When it was cut open, it was partially hollow. The flesh was white, but stained brown. The base was a mycelial pad.
