Observation 2641: Tremellodendropsis tuberosa (Grev.) D.A. Crawford

When: 2007-02-25

Collection location: Los Trancos Preserve, Palo Alto, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Don’t know if I like this id here. These were really small, the largest one here is 2 cm. tall. They seem to be too small, and too finely branched to be C. cristata. But the only sources I have don’t suggest it can be anything else. So, I’m going to call this C. cristata until a Clavulina expert can tell me different.

Whadda you know, I’ve never heard of these guys — Tremellodendropsis tuberosa. I’ve even been up an down the MykoWeb site, and I still don’t remember seeing these. Actually they are listed in Arora, not sure why I dismissed them…

The tips are NOT cristate and the aspect does not fit Clavulina cristata.
A good place to look is Tremellodendropsis tuberosa, and this link has more photos at the bottom of the page.

Clavulina cinerea?

I’m not a clavulina expert but have you considered C. cinerea?
