collected something very similar to this in NYC a couple of weeks ago. My microscopic observations point to the anamorph of Botryobasidium aureum. Your image of spores match mine. I believe these are conidia. I observed these conidia emerging from branched hyphae. For further description and illustration see MycoBank under this taxon.

These spores definitely do not match Oluna /Adolf observation of the same name.
