Yellow-fuzz Cone Slime

Hemitrichia clavata (Pers.) Rost.

Description:

More winter color shown in these images of Yellow-fuzz Cone Slime. So cool to look at in the close-up as all mushrooms are. Yellow in mass. Minutely velvety. Opening above and leaving goblet-shaped cup filled with yellowish, fuzzy threads. Spores rounded.

Habitat:

In dense clusters on dead wood. Throughout North America.

Notes:

As with many other slime molds. The transformation of this species from the beginning to the end of its cycle are dramatic. Often it is possible to recognize the Yellow-fuzz in one stage of development, but not in another.

No species ID suggestions
