Collection location: Yosemite National Park, California, USA [Click for map]
This specimen was found in mixed conifer woods At about 4300 Ft.
The spore print was light orangy and the spores were relatively large; ~14.2-15.6 X 4.9-6.0 microns and fairly verruculose or ridged.
The Ferric sulfate reaction on the stipe context was negative.
Have not done any more microscopic work.
I’ve ventured a weak guess of Ramaria thiersii mostly because of the overall coloration and especially the spore size. No other species of Ramaria that is listed in the SFSU Spring Fungi list has spores this large except for this species.
