this is all one species, just different stages of development. But I would like to know what the lemon yellow things are (in between Dacrymyces fruitbodies).
Unfortunately I am not familiar with Dacrymyces in North America but I do not really believe this is capitatus which should be clearly stiped. Looks more what I would call D. minor. Last word would have the mic as expected ;)

do D. capitatus and D. stillatus co-occur? some look considerably smaller and oranger than others, more in line with what I’ve seen/heard described as D. stillatus.

yeah, could be…

too young to tell though, I think.

this is an ascomycete. I believe it to be something like Dacrymyces.
