Observation 5029: Ramaria botrytis (Pers.) Ricken

Notes:
While normally reluctant to post unknown Ramaria finds, these seemed especially unique with their well defined boletus-like stems and tree-like stature.
However, I couldn’t find anything in the literature I had that matches them. the spores were large and oblong/subfusiform, and apparently smooth and probably non-amyloid(Iodine solution only). The color seemed to fade to more tannish than the photos indicate. Ramaria identification seems to require a high-end microscope and a full chemical lab to even get started. Maybe these look familiar to someone.

Old Ramaria botrytis?

That would be the field id I’d put on them. The ochre color would be from the spores. The branches look like they could have been pink/purplish. The spore shape and overall stature matches. The spores should have at least a bit of ornamentation. The spores are described as slowly amyloid in “Ramaria of the Pacific Northwestern United States”.
