Observation 64667: Ramariopsis fusiformis (Sowerby) R.H. Petersen
When: 2011-03-22
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This lone specimen was growing on the ground near Doug Fir. It was 7.5 cm in total height and fairly tough.
The taste seemed mild to slight bitter.
The spore print was white and the spores were basically globose (excluding the apiculus) and ~ 5.1-6.1 microns.
The sterigmata on the basidium were quite long and seemed to indicate mostly two spores.
Ferrous sulfate on the surface turned green. 3% KOH on the surface gave a somewhat oranger color.
Clavulinopsis fusiformis is usually depicted with several straight unbranched fruitbodies, but the references do indicate that this type of single, antler structure is possible. Most of the other characteristics do seem to fit but the general appearance seems to merit only a “Could Be”.
