I’m guessing…

we don’t get this species here in eastern NA. Probably needs specific conifers in the habitat.

According to Ascomycete.org, the mature spores of G. melaleucoides are “sculpted with minute papillae.” I’m assuming this is a similar type of ornamentation as I see on the spores of G. brunnea. I mention this because it may be useful to know that in order to see the ornamentation you may need to mount the spores in H2O. Apparently, the projections/papillae are delicate and obliterated by some solutions. At least this is true of G. brunnea.
