General Description:

“…Morphological characters indicative of members of clade Clavulinopsis include large basidia (mean > 38 µm long) and likely large spores (mean > 5.8 µm long) with smooth walls. Some taxa react to ferric salts on the surface of their sporocarps and produce spores with distinctly large apiculi. Other species of clade Clavulinopsis centered around C. sulcata, and the C. aurantiocinnabarrina group do not react to ferric salts and have spores with small apiculi.”
