I appreciate your citation! Daniel – The May 20 photos (#2 and #3) show tiny pale yellow – orange hair-like spikes about 3 mm high (a bit more orange than I remember). I am pretty sure it is C. cornea, but I was surprised at these large orange and brown mature forms – probably 12 mm or so. I posted them for this reason.

about those red brown colors.

up to 2.0cm high, variable in shape, simple, subulate [awl-shaped], cylindric, or cylindric-attenuate, or forked and simply branched, occasionally palmate or short-stemmed with a folded or wrinkled cap, consistency firm-gelatinous, usually not distinctly rooted, but occasionally with a slightly bulbous base; yellow to orange-yellow when fresh, drying red-brown, (McNabb)

Must see something I don’t, Martin.

Does not look yellow or yellowish to me. In Arora, p. 675, C. cornea is said to be “…is smaller (up to 15mm high), yellow, and clublike or very sparingly branched; it grows in groups or clusters on twigs and branches of both hardwoods and conifers.” This obs. appear more spike-like, and is branched, although not abundantly so.
