Recognized by sight: Sebacina concrescens is an encrusting species, using dead or living stems and other low-growing plant material to form semi-erect basidiomes which are typically gelatinous, semi-lobate, and white, turning brown in herbarium material. Sebacina incrustans has a similar habit, but is lessgelatinous (it would never be mistaken for a Tremella species), more closely attached, non-lobate, and typically cream to ochraceous. Burt(1921) noted that Tremella concrescens “is so soft that it may possibly be confused… with the white plasmodium of a myxomycete.”
