How to tell the difference.

Hemitrichia clavata, Hemitrichia calyculata and Trichia decipiens are very hard to tell apart without microscopy. One way they are different ounce they are mature is that T. decipiens usually has a more yellow slightly thicker stem than H. calyculata and H. clavata, which is filled with spores. H. clavata’s head looks more like a club shape but usually has a more narrow darker stem as does H. calyculata. T. decipiens and H. calyculata both have more tear shaped heads.
