Calocera sinensis group are a common, widespread wood-rotting fungus found widely on moist dead twigs, branches and logs. [NB: Gk: calo=beautiful; cera=horn] Little spikes (to 10 mm high, 2 mm thick) arise from the wood singly or on groups, as clubs or spikes, single or simply branched, colour from yellow to orange to buff, firm-gelatinous, darker on drying. There are various related species such C. clavata, C. fusca, etc, separable only by microscope. Melba Gully, Otway Ranges, 2010.
