Botryobasidium aurium looks promising. MycoBank illustrations match my observations of the conidial anamorph and in many other aspects.

Glad you scoped it Paul…

Well have to work on some of these together in the spring!

Damned iPod! That’s conidial not conical.

under the scope, I am finding what I think is conical formation of spores. This would suggest that this is some imperfect form of something else, possibly Botryobasidium. Further work is needed.

are you of this ID? I have been seeing this for two years straight. Do you have a microscope for spores or to enlarge the fruit body?
