Ham, I was hoping

you could tell me. Here is Kuo’s way of separating them.

Ramaria concolor is slightly darker but virtually identical, featuring branch tips that are not yellowish to yellow and are, instead, colored like the branches; Ramaria apiculata features branch tips that are often greenish, and differs in the microscopic structure of its rhizomorphs. Several varieties of these species have been described (see Petersen, 1975).

How do you tell them apart? They both look like the same coral.
