Fusicolla is a anamorphic state that consists of a Fusarium spore stage on a little colorful stroma. According to mycobank http://www.mycobank.org/name/Fusicolla%20acetilerea the correct name for at least some is Fusicolla.

Hey Debbie, If its mature, collect it, and I’ll try to pick it up, or you can drop it off. – Tom

Nice catch, but did you notice that the photos are sideways? I can read them that way, just think they might be easier if they were oriented as they are in nature…, but who am I!

Could be interesting…

To know the trees in the area.

Maybe a Gymnosporangium? It’s the season for the teleomorphs, no?
