Observation 8092: Ramaria rubricarnata var. pallida
When: 2008-05-31
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: These were found up there, and would normally be called R. rasillipora. But I was inspired to try and look at the spores first before putting down a name.

The micro-shot was taken of spore at 1000x under oil. It doesn’t come out that well here in the shot, but these are lightly warted, it was easier to see when moving the focus in and out.

With the warted spores, that makes this not R. rasillispora, but R. rubricarnata. There isn’t any salmon colors on the branches, so that makes this var. pallid. This is using the Spring fungi of the Sierra’s as a source, and I’ll try to get back to this later when I get some better sources.
