Mucronella pulchra vs. M. flava

We have seen yellow Mucronella from three sites (Metchosin Park, Elk Lake, and Observatory Hill) and both the Metchosin Park and Observatory Hill would fit to Mucronella pulchra, judging by the subglobose spores and – if you trust this character – by the lack of clamps. I have attached a photo of Oluna’s drawing of the Metchosin Park collection. Mind you, we did not have any other specimens for comparison. For identification, we used Corner, E.J.H. 1970. Supplement to “A Monograph of Clavaria and Allied Genera.” Nova Hedwigia Beihefte, Heft 33, pp. 171-175.
