one stem of uncialis nested in the crowd here, but the rest is something else.

Zaca was showing us another European C. furcata look-alike, too. Wish I remember the name. C. uncialis should have big gaping holes in the axils of the branches near the tips. I’m not seeing that in your photos. But yes, these are clearly continuously corticate, putting them squarely in the furcata group.
