I was confused abuot these things. There seem to be two separate (unrelated?) species. One is like this, with very curved stipes, growing directly on wood; the other is more dingy-colored and grows in troupes on the ground (later observation). The color of this one was whitish to creamy, maybe 2-4" wide, very fragile, with a very tough stipe with copious white cottony mycelia at the base. SPORES must be white, but impossible to see white spores at 20x of course.

At least in the Great Lakes region what passes for this species soon becomes yellowish.

Not even a guess,

but it reminds a bit of Gerronema strombodes. It’s reported from all over the world, but the name is probably misinterpreted both in Europe and the tropics, and consists of several different species..
