When: 2009-12-31

Collection location: Salt Point State Park, Sonoma Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These fit the description for Clavaria rubicundula in MD and the photo in the Bessette book. However, the spores seem fatter/wider than stated in the references. Michael Kuo says he thinks C. fumosa and C. rubicundula are probably the same. However, the spore size for both species are basically the same, which doesn’t help.
