Brief Description:

“…Ramariopsis include species with medium basidia (ca. 23–38 µm long), short spores (mean < 5.8 µm long) with roughened surface ornamentation, medium apicular prominence and branched basidiomata. Nearly all are white to tan or pale yellow, and many species react to ferric salts. This clade corresponds to Ramariopsis sensu Corner (1970) plus species with spores that appear smooth under light microscopy he classified as Clavulinopsis…”
