These were going to be called Thelephora terrestris initially but the spores don’t appear to meet the criteria. T. terrestris has rather large spores 8-12 X 6-9 microns, that are “eliptical-angular, warted (often minutely)” These (see photo), seemed more rounded and smaller,(approx. 5 X 6.5 microns) and obviously warted or spiney.(see photo).
They were about 3 cm high and had stems up to 2.0 cm long.
Couldn’t find much detailed info on T. multipartita except that it has been reported on the west coast.
