Observation 20793: Clavariaceae sensu lato
When: 2008-08-10
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I have come across this species in the same place two years in a row and as yet I have not been able to put a name to it. They stand at best 20 mm high and so far have not been able to get a spore print nor find any basida or spores when looked at with my microscope. Any other suggestions as presently Tremellodendropsis is my best guess.

I think there is getting some confusion as the possible names.

Scytinopogon sp. Two known species in NZ which are quite distinctive I have been into Landcare (PDD) and compared my collections against theirs to confirm ID. There was a note on the collection packet that these name may not be correct but till something is published I am happy with them 

Scytinopogon angulisporus

also the species shown on Johns website

Scytinopogon pallescens
http://hiddenforest.co.nz/...

Apheleria dendroides is a name that came from an old field guide and was what I was originally calling Scytinopogon angulisporus. I now know better.

I don’t think my present observation is ether of these three species and there is no recorded species of Tremellodendron not that that mean much.

Thanks ever one for there suggestions

The fungus is tough but flexible with no smell that I recall. I have been looking at the dates in which I have been finding these and see that it has always been late winter. I am left wondering now if all the spores have been dispersed by the time I find them. A visit earlier in the season might be called for.

it’s an imperfect one, just immature coralloid fungus. If imperfect maybe it comes close to Anthina. Is the fungus’ context soft or hard, any smell etc.?

“Mycelia sterilia”?

Could belong to that group if it doesn’t produce spores
