is not out of the question, but I did not collect a sample. By the time I pass there again, it will probably be gone. It has been over 95 degrees here for many days and almost no rain. But when it reappears somewhere else I will try to grab it. This was a unique observation in my experience – never saw it before. I think it would have a pileus-like cross-section.

can you scope this? if so, see how it stacks up against the description here:

like Sebacina incrustans… but on moss?


in The Thelephoraceae of North America. V. Tremellodendron, Eichleriella, and Sebacina, both S. chlorascens and S. helvelloides are described as growing in or on moss. The former is “pileate” in some way, which this does not at all appear to be. S. helvelloides looks plausible.
