Thanks Alex...what you say is true...climate is changing, species are on the move.

then it seems that the laccaria a. is confirmed in all north america or wikipedia lies. it has spread,look it from this site, everything is slowly but surely changing, the temperature, the season aren't as back then, everything will get shipped (spiders from austrialia to europe). the info from my spotting says: " Central, South, and eastern North America" --> WHY NOT western na??? --wikipedia --> " There are several purplish species in North America that were formally labeled as L. amethystina before Gregory M. Mueller described them as distinct species in 1984. Laccaria amethysteo-occidentalis is found in western North America, where L. amethystina SHOULD not occur" . greetings from nl ---->
btw Clavulinopsis fusiforme is a synoniem for C.laeticolor !!!! :)

well, now I'm really confused...I must devote some time to this ID

As to your spotting, Your info said it was in the Eastern North America.and the spotting you sited was in western NA.
Well, I'm interested in fungi but I surely have no expertise on the subject

Thanks for all your help...much appreciated

i just wanted to react at your comment to my laccaria amethystina and wanted to say, it ist allready found from a pn-member in usa ( http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/598... ) .when you're lucky?!! but then i found this : it could belong to the genus clavulinopsis, then you must decide if one of these, resembles your spotting the most ---> Clavulinopsis ( http://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&su... ), then C. fusiforme ( http://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&su... ) or miyabeana ( http://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&su... ), maybe. I had not research very long,just a wild guess. will look again the next days.

I think you might be right at least as to the genus. There is one species that is yellow...maybe it's just a lighting thing.

Thanks for your research.

Hi ceherzog! These are beautiful & very interesting!!!
I searched & found:
"Clavaria Fragilis" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clavaria_fr...
though what I found were mostly white, which makes me hesitate on offering this as a suggestion.
