Yellow-fuzz Cone Slime

Hemitrichia clavata (Pers.) Rost.


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.


In dense clusters on dead wood. Throughout North America.


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
